DescriptionJade Skull Statue: "Punk"
Artist: Luis Alberto Quispe Aparicio
Stone source: British Columbia, Canada
Punk may be dead, but then ... so is this punk. These days, it's not enough to be a skull, if you want to scare anybody. You need to take the concept a little bit further down the road; to every parent's nightmare: a child with a strong need to shock the old fogeys back in the family mausoleum, and out on the street. This hard-core devotee of "death metal" music has the hairstyle to match the ... lifestyle? Lovingly sculpted in Nephrite Jade, our young street-warrior stands ever ready to bravely match his hairstyle against all comers. The mohawk and ponytail are given further touchs of disaffected machismo by the spiked golden headband that circles his gleaming brow. The darkly menacing young punk sports a gleaming golden set of vertebrae, connecting him to a black granite base with vermeil skull fittings. This dude is bad, and don't you forget it!
