Buffalo skulls

By most recent Etsy treasury focuses on various types of artistic depictions of buffalo skulls - carved leather, prints, art works, photography and sculpture. It is a collection about autumn, decline and memento mori. Still beautiful, though!
Buffalo and ox skull have been used for their eerie beauty and symbolism since Antiquity. Back then, when they were called bucrania (sg. bucranium), garlanding sacrificial oxen was a common practice and their heads  were displayed on the walls of the temples.
