After browsing the LN-CC I came across these beaded skulls, a creation of Our Exquisite Corpse and the Mexico's Huichol people. The beads on these skulls feature prominant patters and symbols from the Huichol religion; with a long history of creating beaded art the Huichol people live in Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Mexico and believe in the power of the Sun God, ancestor spirits and four principle deities; Deer, Corn, Peyote (cactus) and the Eagle. Fascinating! 
Totally weird, a conversation starter and perfect for your mantle.
