Sugar Skull Necklace Day of the Dead Pendant
This completely three dimensional sugar skull pendant is cast in tarnish free solid yellow bronze with a hand burnished finish. An anatomically correct skull tastefully adorned with a raised cross positioned low on the forehead upon an incised spiderweb radiating to the sides and top. The cap of the skull is embellished with a large Mexican sunflower flanked by petals that surround the chain hole on each side. Floral stems emerge from under the chin, writhing around the mouth and jaw spouting leaves as they grow upwards filling the empty eye sockets with beautiful blossoms each with a tiny skull in the center. A crescent moon is carved on each temple and the back of the skull bears a sacred heart in high relief tastefully surrounded by floral design. The detail is superb, even the "back" of the teeth are perfectly carved.
