I get skulls from several places: The Bone Room [link] (a store in my area), taxidermists I have found on deviantART (such as Zhon and Morrokko), eBay, people (including myself) who find them in the wild, and people who get them from unknown places and have me carve them. This skull was from The Bone Room.
Yes but is illegal to but skulls from other countries - that's the problem. I can get some skulls but anly from huntsman who get licence for killing animals and those skulls will belongs to deers, roe-deers, muflons, foxes, boars but I'm affraid this is all. It's almost impossible to get bobcat's or another carnivora. Anyway thank You for help Pleace create more beautifull things with skulls and let me enjoy them And sorry for my bad English ^^'
I have made my own when I felt I needed a special design. I hadn't seen that video. I'm not too impressed, but there are a lot of fantastically good bone carvers in New Zeland (and I suspect there are plenty more in other places).

Truly inspired piece friend,
Subtle as always, but integrated perfectly.
I've been collecting skulls my whole life,never purchased one, except the human(lab specimen). Just found them in my wanderings ,then friends started adding to my group. They always helped me model my sculptures of animals.
We should compare our collections sometime.Or perhaps exchange photos. That actually would help me allot...
I don't have a skull collection, and all my pictures are here. Stuff comes in, sits a while, and then goes on. I do have lots of little bits of rock, shell, and whatnot on hand, and a couple of coyote skulls, but that's more "materials" than "collection"....
