Skull Cup and Spoon

Over the years I have been requested to line human skulls with pure silver with a silver lid, interestingly, water remains sweet in pure silver containers on account of anti-bacterial qualities. In Tibet human bones have been utilised as in many cultures that have Shaman activities. Through long and focused ritual chanting, liquids are empowered and often shared with the participants dolled into the hand with a libation spoon shown below.

Libation Spoon in silver about half a cubit long with an eight pronged Dorje head with coral set with turquoise. All made here at Flisk North Fife. I sometimes think it very odd myself.
