These colorful skulls, adorned with symbols of life (in the form of flowers and vines) are a cool way to brighten up a wall. Humanizing death and taking the fear out of it, these skulls can be a continuous reminder of the ebb and flow of life and death, separate yet only by the thinnest of veils. Their mirrored eyes ask you to take a look, how are you honoring this blessing of life while you have it?

They come in a variety of colors. Please e-mail us to ask about our current stock if you have a preference of colors. They are roughly 13" x 9".
