Amazing looking Guns made out of Bones
What do you do when you have amassed a colossal collection of shells, fossils and bones since childhood? If you’re Bruce Mahalski, you make guns…amazingly intricate ghoulish pieces of art.
The New Zealand artist admits his collection of dead animals may be slightly weird, but as his creations come together, what was once dead, seems to be alive again, in a kind of recycling sort of way.
– A lot of these things are just too good to leave lying around and I have to take them home.
His most recent creation, two bone dueling pistols (with spare bullets) mounted in a custom altered case which has been counter-sunk into a specially made rimu table, has not yet been exhibited and this is the first time it is being offered for sale.
The head on the bottom gun is from a ferret and the top one is from a black-backed gull. Both have barrels made from cat’s vertebrae.
