Pepper Skull

Parade float artist, and past contributor, Marcus Pollitz in Pomona, California created this skull using natural materials.  He wrote: " This is 1 of 12 skulls made for Dia de Los Muertos at the Autry National Center.  The display '12 Tribes of Seed' are all sculpted and decorated in natural materials. This pepper skull is made up of several different chiles, peppercorns, pepper seeds, and crush sweet rice."

It is truly amazing how the natural world provides us with such wonderful items that we can create with. I really like the look of the fire that seems to be erupting from the top it captures the look that one may expect to experience if one were to mistakenly eat a spoonful of habenero relish not realizing that a spoonful was way too much.  Thank you for sharing once again some of your interesting skull related work with us.
