As usual, Trend Hunters are spotting a micro-trend: diamonds in skulls. This piece was done by Walter Robinson and has the Superman logo, hence its name, Cephalogo.

As we know Superman could only be killed by Kryptonite, so this piece is made of plastic, metal and "found" material.

Another skull that was covered with diamonds sold for $100 million recently.

Implications - There is something incredibly captivating about morbid and death-themed objects. It may be our fear of death and pain that creates a sense of intrigue. Designers that are able to exploit the dark and eerie themes will find that there will always be an audience curious about the pieces they create.
