This gray wolf skull is an original carving cast in solid sterling silver and oxidized black. It measures 1 3/4 long. The skull is completely accurate down to the teeth and the fissures in the skull. The jaw opens and closes smoothly.
The piece comes on a blackened sterling silver chain.
This piece was designed, carved, cast, bench worked, and polished here in NYC. The goal here is to support the people who work with me. There are a whole lot of people behind this piece. When you buy one you create work here.
There have been numerous credible wolf sightings in New York State in the past ten years. It still has not been officially stated that there are wolves that have made their way back.
I was reading Tom Spanbauer's Now is The Hour about New York in the 80's and was interested to find that the native people (Lenape) had called this lower part of Manhatta, (their word for the island) The Wolf Swamp. It's perfect.
This piece comes carefully wrapped in gift tissue and in a gold foil box. I include a business card with a link to my website which has info, press, pictures, and video of me at work.
