Carved Coconut Skull

Scott Middlehurst carved a coconut "into a skull using my Dremel tool and some diamond points".

I love the rawness of this carved skull. That's probably from the wood grain of a coconut. That has to be a difficult and unpredictable wood to work with. The skull reminds me of a tribal mask. It also reminds me of "what if" stories related to being stranded on a deserted island. Surely, I would need to do something creative while waiting for rescue. Perhaps it would be making a skull out of a coconut...though without a Dremel to help.
