Oxidized Copper Skull

''The copper skull represents people who achieve 3rd place in any given competition. People who reach the third place are underrated and we easily forget how much work they have put into their craft. Instead, we are quick to celebrate only the best, even when the difference between them is only marginal. Copper does not rust like iron and its compounds however it does get oxidized. Firstly, it forms a dark brown or black color but eventually, it turns into a beautiful blue–green patina. The whole skull is oxidized representing all the blood sweat and tears put into one’s craft. Only the flower has further oxidized to the patina state. In other words, good things take time, and not all outcomes will satisfy you, however you should not give up so easily. The real reward comes after a long-term dedication.'' - Gabuni

Silver Skull

''The silver skull represents people who achieve 2nd place in any given competition. To be second instead of first angers many competitors and creates jealousy. It is only human nature, after all, to want the best for oneself. Even so, we must swallow our ego, put on a fake smile, and congratulate the winner. The flower is blood orange to represent the inner rage of being so close to victory, only to have it swept right under you. The overall expression shows contempt. Often being so close to victory feels worse than losing.'' - Gabuni

Golden Skull

''The golden skull represents people who achieve 1st place in any given competition. To achieve ultimate victory creates a euphoria in the body and mind. It is almost as if we transform from that point onward and let our egos take over. The flower is purple to give the skull an appearance of royalty to match the overall expression of entitlement with a smug smile. People in this position often forget they are only human and sooner or later someone else will surpass them.'' - Gabuni

Organic Metal Skull

''Organic metal does not exist, or maybe it does? That is the point! Those who are creative enough to think outside the box cannot be put on a simple scale of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. The yellow color of the flower represents the power of creation and growth beyond the limitations we set ourselves. The purple eye represents an unconventional point of view. The overall expression shows the realization that what we assume is fact is not always so.'' - Gabuni
