Sketchbook: Dayak Trophy Skull

I cut loose with some india ink this morning and drew this Skull.  It's a head-hunting trophy and has been hand-carved on the cranium.  It's not very intricate decoration, but it sort of matches the brutality of the practice of collecting enemies' heads.

The Dayak are a large collection of tribes that live in Borneo and were feared headhunters.  Here's a link to the Wikipedia page, incase you are curious.

Now I have happy inky hands.
