About the Item




This Absolute work of art is a combination of gorgeous grain and almost unbelievably complex design, stands as nice testament to Andrey Savenko's dedication to his charming art. You probably saw Skull pipes by some other makers, but this work is some thing completely different. The way of carving, the design of Skull, color of finish and 2 Steel insertions on the Briar, make it absolutely unique.

If you look at care to this creation, you will understand how much the artisan is familiar with Anatomy of Human and Skull. He perfectly carved the shape of the Human Head with absolute attention into details. This is almost unbelievable to guess how he carved each part of this Skull pipe based on reality (Human Anatomy) and mix it with his own way of art to exhibit the charming, stunning and perfect smoking pipe. 

You can easily find the Frontal Bone, Parietal Bone, Occipiatl Bone (with a nice Arch shape at the back), Nasal Bone, Maxilla, Mandible, Lacrimal Bone, Malar Bone and even Ramus on this creation. For sure to carve this unique item, he carefully reviewed the Anatomy of Human Skull. Dazzling lines of grain radiate and fan out from the hard, curved edges on each Flank, lending to the complex composition a steady sense of motion and dexterity. In a clever way, he made up the Briar in a fascinating freehand style and the result comes up with the most three-dimensional structure of Skull smoking pipe, which you can ever imagine.

Interestingly, to magnify the impression of Skull he inserted 2 Steel hands made Insects on the Briar. The first is a hand made Spider with six Tarsus (legs) and 2 separate Carapase (body). He inserts the Spider in the Neck of the Skull. The other insertion is very interesting, as he did it masterfully inside the left eye. It is a hand made Steel Fly. The artisan even goes one step further and performed fine Dot Engraving on 2 wings of the Fly (Please check the picture with more care). 

All and all the result offers the stunning shape of Skull, which can be performed only by this Russian super carver. This beautiful art of work comes with a big leather pouch.
