Different Types of Skull Figurines

In Mexican history, skull Figurines have been depicted with powerful, positive, and powerful images. Because the Aztecs created their art on the ground in the form of a cone, it was a very powerful image to them. Centuries later, the Aztec symbol of skulls and bones with the sun and moon as sources of power and light made its way into the homes of the Native Americans. In many Native American tribes it is an important part of their home decor. These types of skull figurines can be found in rock walls of caves along with ceramic skulls that are found in their pottery. In fact, these types of figurines can be found all over North America.

A lot of times, when people think of skulls and bones, they imagine violent killers or villains. However, there are many beautiful and powerful Aztec and Native American art pieces that do not have blood or gore depicted on them. Some skulls can have flowing hair and feathers, while others have simple knots and circles carved into them. The designs that are carved into the skulls can be very complex. For example, there are many sugar skull figurines that are found in the Southwest that have bold and powerful characteristics that can show anger and determination, while other sugar skull figurines can have smooth, simple lines and features that portray a more peaceful appearance.

One of the most common images used in Mexican art is that of the skull and the grave. In the southwestern part of the country, you will find the posada - or skeleton in the mask. Often times, the posada will have two masks; one that are made for everyday wear, and one for a more ceremonial use. For example, the masks would be made out of animal hide and decorated with feathers and beads. This type of skull figurines represent the warrior, while the sugar skull represents the witch, or healer.

Two types of skull figurines exist; those that are made out of actual animal skin and those that are made out of porcelain or ceramic. While animal skin and bone are the preferred materials, ceramic can also be used. Porcelain is a type of glass that is created by mixing clay and soda ash, then heating it to produce a white powder. Any type of painted image that is painted onto the surface of the ceramic skull figure can then be applied onto the porcelain surface. Before applying paint on the skull figurine, however, you must first remove any type of paint that may be on the skull itself.
