Victory Over Mortality

This work represents my first tattoo based sculpture, in tattoo culture the skull is a symbol of mortality and death as this was my first major work in cast metals it represents my accomplishments. This piece was a make it or break it scenario. To represent this it is a solid cast which is unusual in a piece this size as it is technically challanging to produce, the overall wieght is quite substantial and helps to emphasis the gravitas of the accomplishment.

The piece is made from cast iron and wieghs around 4 stone and is polished to a rough shine with the scorch marks left in the resess to emphasis the details.
