SAHARA – Faux Cow Skull

(Sahara is currently for sale in my Etsy Shop)

‘Sahara’ reflects the purity and elegance of a natural skull. After being hand sculpted from clay I painted minimal detail and use natural tones to accentuate her curves and shape.

Sahara’s ‘horns’ are actually a pair of ‘Baileyi’ Airplants. Here are my simple recommendations on how to keep them happy and healthy;
– Mist the plants once or twice a week with water, ensuring they have dried off within 4 hours or your plants may begin to rot.
– Place the skull in a bright room, but out of direct sunlight as the plant may get too dry and begin to brown.
I include a care sheet specific to the variety of airplant with each skull for future reference.

Sahara is designed to be hung on the wall and therefore has a simple hole for hanging (e.g. place on to a picture hook or nail). She will arrive nestled in tissue paper and securely tied down within a tear strip postal box – all the packaging is recyclable.

Each of my skulls are one of a kind. They may share a theme collectively however they will never come out the same. I give them all a personal name to reflect this uniqueness.
