An ornament version of a red-eared slider turtle skull (Trachemys scripta elegans) coated in bronze metal and finished with a blue-green patina. The patina is burnished with fine steel wool to highlight and polish the metal underneath. Multiple thin coats of metal allow for an amazing amount of detail to be preserved in this real metal finish. Red-eared sliders are invasive in certain parts of the US, and these skulls come from ones that were removed from natural areas. Does not include lower jaw.
