The design of this piece was influenced by the beadwork of the African Maasai people.
Most of my geometric designs are perfectly symmetrical along the vertical axis of the skull. I broke away from that trend with this skull. The ‘crown’ (below the horns and above the eye sockets) is free and asymmetrical- lots of triangles and bands of color.
The radial pattern around the eye sockets resemble traditional Maasai ceremonial disk-necklace.
