Beautiful Skulls Carved and Painted into Mother-of-Pearl

Gregory Halili, an artist in New Jersey, was born in the Philippines. He remains captivated by the natural environment of that country. Among other projects, Halili carves and paints bas-relief images of skulls into the mother-of-pearl material inside shells from the Philippines. The results are haunting and beautiful.
