Emilio Garcia is a popular creative mind known for incorporating skeletons into his designs, and his latest creation for the popular artistry event Art Basel features miniature golden skulls plated with luxe 24-karate gold. The mini rotting heads combine opulence with the macabre as a modern occult design for consumers to add to their homes.
Skulls are often referenced in art as a symbol of death, revival or decay and Garcia's work offers a timeless preservation of the motif in his precious metal designs. The mini accessories feature an intricate design of skeletal visage made not from bone, but brains. The skulls are limited edition and are made using a combination of resin and gold gild to add a shiny, luxe and dapper appearance to these trinkets.
