DescriptionAquamarine Skull Statue: "Troublemaker"
Artist: Luis Alberto Quispe Aparicio
Stone source: Mozambique
Little brother to "Punk," seen elsewhere in the collection, is that bane of schoolteachers and parents everywhere: the "Troublemaker" - the kind of kid who's smart enough to evade capture and responsibility for the mayhem that he engenders. As befits little brothers everywhere, in his fit of hero worship, he has slavishly attempted to copy his older sibling's tonsorial tastes right down to the mohawk and the headbands. His efforts to be cool even extend to the cool blue Aquamarine, that Luis used to define the concept of troublemaker cool. His single headband bears tooth-like spikes of blue Lapis Lazuli and the deep black Obsidian base sports golden furniture, continuing the "spiked skull" motif. Keep an eye on this one - he could end up a politician.
