[Flashback Friday] #10 United Skull Of America

Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Citizen Agent, Azurafae, and myself, Tatman, are taking turns counting down our personal favorite 17 skulls from the Original 365.25 Year. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.

4. 10. United Skull Of America

The United Skull Of America might not be my #1 favorite, but it deserves so much more than a #4 ranking deserves. I am firstly a proud American, so seeing the states of my country formed into a skull touches a special place in my heart. The first piece amazed me in the time that it probably took to arrange them to the perfect shape. Then Noah went and did it again to include all 50 states. After that he topped it all off by creating a 9ft. tall version cut from wood for his skull exhibition After Life. The progression of this piece has taken on a life of it's own and you can even help that by sporting a t-shirt with this design as well. Thanks to the Skull Master for taking the old U.S. of A. on another skullified trip!

**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.0. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3.0, all 52 can be found here.
