Our exQuisite Corpse commissions the Huichol people of Western Mexico to create these awesome beaded works of art. Huichol artisans painstakingly cover human and animal skulls with intricate patters of tiny, colorful beads. Because each one-of-a-kind piece is beaded using wax, they need to be kept away from heat and the sun.
The finished Human Skulls (made of resin, not bone, just in case anyone was wondering) all appear deliriously happy. The longer we look at them, the more we can’t help starting to grin right along with them.
While they’re all gorgeous, our favourite piece has got to be the stunning life-sized replica Giraffe Skull complete with beaded vertebrate.
This is my dream catcher tattoo. The photo was taken right after it was finished. It was done by the wonderfully amazing John Barrett at Black Swan Tattoo, FL. This has a significant amount of personal meaning to it, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Savannah cats are the name given to the offspring of a domestic cat and a serval — a medium-sized, large-eared wild African cat. The unusual cross became popular among breeders at the end of the 20th century, and in 2001 the International Cat Association accepted it as a new registered breed. Interestingly, savannahs are much more social than typical domestic cats, and they are often compared to dogs in their loyalty. They can be trained to walk on a leash and even taught to play fetch.
