7 Skulls

Inspired by my artist book, The Book of Penumbra, which is the text for this fine binding, I carved out 7 black pearl skulls from a Dremel drill to represent each god, and I mounted them on metal wire to show a ritualistic depiction of heads on spikes.

The cover's oval motif mimics the ovals I used inside the book to contain all the illustrations and text. The boards are thicker so the pearls wouldn’t get knocked around too much when handled.
