I have never thought that ourselves are so shallow understanding on our own culture , when people talk about skull or skeletons, all believe that they are come from abroad, the truth actually is, our ancestor has been using these skeletons on all sort of creative art works thousands years ago. As we all knew, that one typical top achievement of a solider is to cut enemy leader’s head. The skull as a prize , to us ,seems a very cruel thing to believe, but at that time, it is very proud thing to do. And even some skull or skeleton were made into different kinds of pendants or other type of ark works to show the honor and confidence of a solider.
You may or may not know, nay of the deities of Tibetan Buddhism, including Mahasiddhas, Dakinis and Dharmapalas are depicted as carrying Kapala. Use skull or skeleton as art works to hold a memorial ceremony for sacrifice of God is a global phenomena for thousands years, not only in Chinese Tibet, but also all around the world we can see such similar culture , because maybe our ancestors all have same thinking , the spirit congregated in the skull is the best tool to communicate with God. But now you must understand that the real Kapala is very rare exist anywhere in the world, not only it must be made from real Lama’s skull, but also is banned by most country as it is made of human body which is strictly regulated by law. So generally .even you want to talk with God in such a way, it is nearly impossible to acquire a real one nowadays. But don’t be disappointed, our team has beautifully ,fully restored such Kapala in resin, 100% allowed by any country’s law. The painting is doing by hand bit by bit make it really looks real, from our photo you hardly can tell difference with real human skull, one artist can only create one such skull in a day time. For such job, we don’t accept any type of bargain or discount, because we believe it worth every penny you paid for. For the price we have listed, we also believe you can’t find same quality and beautifully made piece anywhere in the world.
This is the first time that we introduce our art in English, because in a Chinese team site, I can’t let my people in the same race to fully understand the meaning of such work, first it is a replica of skull, second it have religious meaning and beautiful decorative design to support it. When you talk about dark aesthetic theory while drink the coca, do you know that these element has been daily used thousands years ago by our own ancestors ? Look at the monsters deisgned on the unearthed bronze items, Alien just a piece of toy! Very offen somebody tell me the skull art works are so brilliant abroad. But I really want to tell you “ fuck off, you are nuts, such thing are all over China even from Yuan and Ming dynasty. What were the American’s doing, they are fucking chasing buffalos.
Why skeleton always means death, why it let you feel scary? It is the thing we all have, we just can’t see though ourselves to face it.
The first Chinese character was on the bone, and such thing is looks like called oracle.
