These totally enchanting, authentic HAND CARVED BUFFALO SKULL with amazing ornate carvings are hand crafted in Bali, Indonesia, the “Island of the Gods”.
Hugely talented Balinese master craftsmen spend days of designing and carving with traditional tools to transform the buffalo skull into a true work of art . This tradition of taking a buffalo skull and carving a beautiful design into it has its roots in Bali, making it an original and one-of-a-kind Balinese tradition. It is said ” this ancient ritual began with glorifying the skulls of humans who were sacrificed for religious beliefs. Today many artisans keep the tradition of carving intricate designs into the skull to make use of every last part of the animal.”
The hand carving and crafting process itself takes this uniqueness one step further. Each individual artist adds his own personal touch, transferring a piece of his or her own personality into the work, so naturally, no two pieces are the same.
