We can remember that exact feeling when we first saw the outstanding craftsmanship that went into the creation of carving Cow Skulls. We couldn’t take our eyes off the inspiring aura coming speaking through the magnificent artwork of beautiful ornaments.

That’s when we decided that we had to share these amazing artworks with the entire world to make sure these extremely talented individuals receive the credit and respect they deserve.

The notion of taking bones and carving tribal ornaments into them is a long-standing Balinese tradition with an Indonesian heritage. Most Balinese people put their Hindu religion in to the center of their life and love to implement religious symbolism in their artwork. Hindus deeply appreciate every living being are deeply connected to the circle of life. They eat meat as a part of their daily diet. At some point they decided to further honor animals by even using their bones to transform them into artwork. Hence they clean the bones and prepare them in various steps before carving their artistic symbols and ornaments into them.

It takes around 6-8 days of full preparation, sketching, carving, drying, dying and sunbathing before a cow skull, bull skull, horse skull or ram skull is transformed into an exception art piece that can add a blissful touch to any home décor.

We are proud to say that by creating an online presence and sharing the word about these amazing products we have given many Balinese artists a stable job opportunity with which they can provide their families. Each animal skull is 100% unique and comes with an individual touch of the artist creating it. Purchasing a Skull by Skull Bliss helps to keep an Indonesian tradition alive and will give your home a stunning touch that will never go out of fashion.
