Fine Art Friday: Jason Borders - "Carved Skulls" Series

Though this may not be hip hop related necessarily, but given the prominent tattoo culture of the hip hop community at times, something about Portland-based artist Jason Borders series of ornately carved animal skulls struck a chord with me and I wanted to feature his work. Each of the skulls are carved by hand using a Dremel tool, and use repeated, ornate patterns and styles with tattoo-esque motifs and dense shapes.the work is dedicated to the eternal human issues of life and death, and I wish I had one to hang on my wall.
