Description

This is second coin in “CARVED SKULLS and BONES SERIES” named Carved Skull of st Aloysius Gonzage inspired by beautiful calligraphic work of famous American artist Zane Wylie.

This Carved Skull coin is a work a little more special than most. Depicting religious iconography and some genuine old crosses, the piece is noteworthy for including actual bone fragments from Saint Gonzaga, although the skull itself is more recent in origin. You can take a good look at the work involved and the finished article in the video lower down.
The reverse face of this coin features a depiction of the skull set against a background of pattern details from it. The coin has some very subtle color highlighting ,rimless and ultra high-relief
