Longhorn Skull #5
These silver laced head coverings, called a Shaffron in medieval times, are unique to just one artist in the world, Steve Penney. These are NOT like imitators attempt where stones are glued on the skull and gaps are filled with colored caulk. Only SAH Gallery offers the genuine Steve Penney skulls.
The span of this longhorn is 51-1/2" and is inlaid with over 275 stones. Each stone is thoughtfully selected, wrapped in copper tape and tinted with solder, giving the effect of stain glass. The stones are individually placed following the contour of the skull. Once placed they are bridge soldered to create a solid mask. As a finishing touch a 4 inch silver plated metal concho is placed on the forehead.
Every collector can claim that they have a Steve Penney Skull.
