A beautiful white deep box frame with bone art in the design of a sun. This piece is called "Dark Sun".
This frame with real owl pellet bone artwork has been made with real bones found through wild owl pellets, from shrews, voles, mice and bird bones. I've put a lovely vintage metal rose in the middle, which was originally a brooch about 50 years ago. I've made this display on a textured black mulberry background. This piece counts 178 tiny bones!
I've dissected each owl pellet and cleaned the bones. Then the bones go through the whitening process. After that, they are carefully sorted into sections for different bone types. These art displays are then created with the cleaned bones. Each one is situated on the background using tweezers. Lastly, I come up with a design as I go along and they are each individually glued down.
Keep in mind that some bones retain their natural bone colour. I like to keep these natural elements in my art.
The frame measures 20 x 20cm (8" x 8") and has hanging features.
The glass has been taken out for the photos, this will be put back in before shipping.
