Broken Skull

The skull symbolizes our knowledge of our own mortality. Memento mori "remember that you must die". In the death-resurrection cycle, it is symbolizes the promise of new life. In many cultures the skull is revered as a totem of our ancestors. This skull is a guardian and as such has been altered slightly to fit his purpose. The teeth are elongated and pointed, indicating both wisdom and ferocity. The overall size is larger than a normal human skull. The bones of the upper skull of course cannot move, but this skull shows flared nostrils and a furrowed brow to ward against evil.
