The symbolic behind this art project is that the skull symbolizes the core of nature’s richness. The importance
that is in its essential derived from the bone. To embrace this the collection includes the skulls of five
prominent animals. To enhance the strength of the animal kingdom the pieces were covered in 24 Carat

powerful than one can imagine and should be cherished and taking care of accordingly.
