Maori Lava Rock Skull
Posted by Abby Davis
Christopher Soprano of Sop Art Studio, created this sculpture. He was inspired by facial tattoos of the New Zealand Maori warriors. He explained, the "skull appears to float on a bed of simulated lava rock. The base of the wall sculpture is cast in a translucent resin. When hung in a window or in front of a light source the stones emit a molten glow." Tattooing has a long history and I love seeing it still used by centuries (and eons) old cultures, continuing their traditions.
