"Lucia" Boar Teeth Sphere


In the last couple of years, I've developed a fixation with creating bone and tooth spheres. At shows and events that I've taken the tooth sculptures to, people seem to share the fascination. They're somewhat polarizing - people either love them or hate them. There's no in-between.

This particular one is made from boar teeth, and it measures about 5" across. The overwhelming majority of bones and teeth I use are harvested from roadkill, however, for the sake of full disclosure, these are an exception. A friend of mine has a ranch out by Junction, TX, and they have a huge problem with feral hogs tearing up the fences and injuring their animals. Consequently, they kill any boar they see on the property. Every couple of years, I go out and pick up anything I can use from their killing field. Since boar are so large, I generally just pull the teeth, and leave the rest for the vultures.

Note: Due to US laws, most animal bones cannot be shipped outside the United States without a permit. The cost of the permit is cost-prohibitive, so this item is only available for sale within the United States. I apologize for the inconvenience.
