Mirrored Cow Skull

I was inspired by an Aztec mask covered in bits of beautiful glass. The Aztecs gathered the glass from all parts of the world. The mask was a human skull. I am using broken mirrors, some older than me. I can't throw mirrors away when they crack. I have always kept them for any future projects; I am turning my "bad" luck into good fortune. I have looked into these mirrors at each stage of my life.

The skull comes from my in-laws long horn ranch. This particular one is in almost perfect condition.

This a long horn skull painted in shades of gold. Sold.

Multi-colored long horn skull. Sold.
