Reminds me of a captive ball carving, very neat, and different than your skulls. I would imagine you are using a foredom for your carvings?

This was done mainly with the Foredom, cleanup and detailing with the micromotor.

this is impressive. got some antler tips lying around somewhere... and if there's someone telling that's the magic crystals that got to be carved, I'll carve them crystals right up!

Ma ma mia! Don! This is carving!!!!
WOW!
I also love the finishing touch with beewax, dirtying it enough to give it a little hand of centuries aging!!!!!!
