Urnes Serpents Roe Deer Skull Cap
This one of a kind fallow Roe deer skull cap has been designed and created exclusively for Northern Fire by Nadine from Nordurljós Art.
The Urnes style is the last and most elegant of the Viking age art styles; known for its graceful, winding serpent motifs and elongated animal figures. The design is first drawn freehand on to the skull in pencil, then burned completely by hand using pyrography.
Material & Make
The use of fire to manipulate natural materials is one of the most ancient forms of artistry. Pyrography has been discovered on artefacts globally such as bone, wood, leather, and even stone.
Each piece is uniquely one of a kind, having been hand worked by the artisan to compliment the dimension of the design and respect the natural grain of the wood.
All of these are A1 grade skulls (intact and undamaged, all teeth present, all oil and dirt completely removed). They are cleaned and treated with peroxide to museum quality, so they can be shipped internationally too. All are sourced ethically and legally within the UK.
