About the Artwork

A very unique piece. Polished Arizona druzy quartz geode halves have been inset in the skull giving a depth not seen before in this medium. With turquoise cabochons, Bali silver, seed beads, with rich black kidskin leather finishing and braided leather horn wraps. Impressive, highly polished black and grey horns with splashes of white.


About the Artist

Using genuine animal skulls as the raw form, Maria D’Souza combines design, color, and dimension to create one of a kind pieces. Her beaded animal skull art is unique in that she does not view the form of the skull as a canvas that she is bound to. She views it more as a frame to create within. She uses semi-precious and precious stones, seed beads, Bali silver, patina copper, exotic leathers, and other materials to create patterns of symmetry, depth, and motion. Continually striving to create pieces that have never been done before her art constantly reflects the use of new materials and artistic techniques.
