#10 - #205. (Light As A) Feather Skull
I chose this one for two reasons. One, yesterday was Thanksgiving, so this reminds me of the many turkeys that were consumed yesterday. A feather skull, seems appropriate. The other reason is that simply it's a beautiful and delicate piece. Feathers are temperamental to work with. I make fascinators and other hair accesories, where I use feathers. You might have lots of down on you when you are done, but you also have a beautiful delicate piece to be proud of. I like how Noah used the natural curves of the feathers to shape the skull details in the face. The side and back of the skull have a lumpy texture, but I've never seen a smooth skull, so this works well too. I have the sudden urge to break out the messy feathers and make more hair accessories. It's like Hermes for your head.
