  1. Hello Yiannis! I enjoy collecting decorated human skulls. I just purchased a skull you painted in 1975 for your friend, Bruce. I was wondering if you could tell me more about it. Do you know whose skull was used in the piece? Is there a backstory you can tell me about the creation of this particular work? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you! Robert
