Five-Foot Skull Covered In Leather Petals
London-based artist Jacky Tsai has created a giant skull made of leather-petal flowers.
Called ‘Floral Skull Leather Sculpture’, the artwork explores the juxtaposition between death and blossoming flowers.
His vision was to “create a unique marriage between traditional Eastern craftsmanship with contemporary Western pop art.”
The five-foot floral sculpture took 15 needlesmiths 300 days and nights to stitch together 1,000 leather pieces—which were used to produce the countless blossoms that adorn the giant skull.
Tsai’s other work, titled ‘Floral Skullptures’, is a series of beautiful skulls covered in hand-stitched flowers.
