Crystal Skull Art by Quinn Gregory

Ciao!
Few days ago I was looking for some photos from exhibition Dekadence Now! and I found a page about artist - Quinn Gregory who decorate human skulls with Swarovski crystals. *___*

Here is a short artice about Quinn's work copied from his webpage.

While the artist was a lawyer for several years; in 2004 he was diagnosed with a rare heart disease. This diagnosis altered Quinn’s life in many ways. Naturally, it forced Quinn to focus on death and how our society deals with death. Quinn's art boldly reflects the extreme emotional journey his medical condition has taken him on.

Quinn strongly believes that our bodies are merely shells we use while here on Earth (nothing more or less). He believes that the human skeleton is innately beautiful. He also loves the extremes of death (in the form of a human skull) and bejeweling it with colorful Swarovski Crystals. Each original and limited Quinn GregorySkull contains somewhere between
8,500 to 12,500 crystals.

Each skull is obviously unique and ‘re-named’ by the artist. While there are a few Quinn Gregory Skulls shown herein, alternative colors and combinations of the Swarovski Crystals used are available by custom order. Prices may vary, based on the size of the skull, the color and type of crystals used and the amount used. ¨
