»» A home is where the heart is ♥‡♥ A skull is where the soul is ««
Spanning all sorts of eras and ethnologies, decorated bones are an ancient adornment way sicker than your average. The ideology behind a skull is vast. And if you find yourself searching for a gift with meaning with holiday season, there’s a whirlwind of ancient societies and modern folkways that would point you in the same direction:
Towards the aged and evocative heirloom that points right back at you. Two calcified tips looking forward. Bound to a habitat, which at a time, was colonized. But this entity of energy has since sailed onward.
The adventure to the afterlife. A celebration of vitality. A reminder of our transience. An honor to humanity within flesh and without.
Many civilizations believe the skull is a portal. The deepest of our intuitions arouse at the sense of an entry, an opening. We’re creatures that yearn to escape and explore. Our primal enticements of secret doors and vast landscapes, any sense of uncharted adventure- it lures us. We’re magnetized by these roundabout saturations of philosophy. Whether a spiritual gateway or a provocative enigma of what’s to come, we adorn our walls with bones to nourish our souls. It’s an unconscious and enchanted stimulation.
We cherish these philosophies, and hope to spread their purpose to as many hearts and homes as we can. We seek to awaken your senses- we’re wild like that. Are you?
Even fossilized and vacant, we believe that the value of a head remains as the truest point of individuality. Child of Wild seeks to preserve the importance of unique identity. Our glorified bones have unique personalities, meant to juxtapose your own.. and the abode you call home. Take a peak at a few of our favorite personas and where we think they’d dwell in harmony.
