Moon Skull - 50 x 50 cm , 2cm thick

''In alchemy, the moon represents fertility, resurrection, occult power, immortality, and intuition. It acts as a counterbalance to the sun. It is symbolic of the feminine form in many cultures; hence the skull is anatomically female. It is related to silver as one of seven alchemical metals, hence the use of silver paint on the moon. Just as sunflowers always face the sun for energy, the moon is dependent on the sun for the light which it reflects upon us.'' - Gabuni

Sun Skull - 50 x 50 cm , 2cm thick

''The sun has been a symbol of power, growth, health, passion, and the cycle of life in many cultures and religions throughout time. In alchemy, it represents the perfection of all matter on any level, including that of the mind, spirit, and soul. It counterbalances the moon. It is further symbolic of the male form and thus the skull is painted anatomically male. It is related to gold as one of seven alchemical metals, hence the use of gold paint on the sun. The eye is blue as it is looking at the blue-white glow of the moon opposite.'' - Gabuni

Eclipse Skull - 50 x 50 cm , 2cm thick

''In alchemy, an eclipse represents the merging of the sun and moon to create a godly body. Another way to phrase this is that we combine our inner unconscious thoughts with our consciousness to achieve total inner balance, and hence peace. This allows us to exponentially grow as a person and see or realize things we never could before. At this point, we truly know ourselves and are fully aware of our existence and the existence around us. To me, the flower and eye are the perfect balance in my works with skulls, hence why you will see these symbols in all my skulls.'' - Gabuni
