Artist's Description

Crystal Skulls legend and prophecy one of archaeology’s most compelling mysteries is that of the 13 skulls.

Skulls have been one of the most powerful objects of symbolism in human history, all over the world. Several “perfect” crystal skulls have been found in parts of Mexico, Central and South America, USA, Brazil, France, Mongolia, and in Tibet. Together, they form a mystery as enigmatic as the Nazca Lines, The Great Pyramids and Stonehenge. These skulls are believed to be between 5000 and 35000 years old. During early expeditions, archaeologists were told by locals that the skulls possessed magical powers and healing properties. However, people were unsure as to where they came from, or even why they existed. Some like to believe that these were remains from the lost civilisation Atlantis. Others like to believe these are fakes (art objects only). And yet another group of psychics believe that these skulls are a device maintaining the capability to enable us to look into the past, present and future.

Native American Legend

Historians and social anthropologists decided to find out more about crystal skull. They came across an ancient Indian legend. The legend says that there were originally thirteen life-size human skulls of solid crystal with movable jaws that were said to speak and sing. These skulls held the greatest mysteries of life and the universe. They told the past history of this planet and the evolution of mankind. The significance of the number thirteen is that including the Sun,the Moon and the ten planets in our solar system adds up to the number 12. The last one stands for Quetzalciatl, the serpent god, who will return again to rule all the planets. The Mayan year was made up of 13 months of 20 days. There are thirteen Mayan gods of the upper-world. The legend says that at a time of great crisis, for humanity, that the skulls will be rediscovered and brought back together to reveal their knowledge. Native American Cherokee Medicine Man, Harley Swift-Deer Reagan is quoted as saying: “The skulls were kept inside a pyramid in a circle, with the thirteenth skull, the largest, placed in the center of this formation. This thirteenth skull represents the collective consciousness of all the worlds. It connects up the knowledge of all the sacred planets.”

crystals have many uses today…as well for healing they are used in watches and electronic devices and many more

Not the best looking skull, but it is a home made one, model in poser then into bryce with glass texture and into photoshop
