Dead Alive


“I kick ass for the Lord.” This a movie quote from Braindead (Dead Alive in the US), spoken by the Priest in the cemetery. It has been hand punched and embroidered into pig skin leather. The leather has been custom treated and finished to closely mimic the look and feel of human flesh. The leather has then been affixed to a wooden double cross. The piece has been spattered with a custom concocted blood varnish. There is approximately 18 hours of work in this piece.

The cross measures 8 3/8 inches by 5 3/4 inches by 3/4 inches. The cross has been stained Red Mahogany and Ebony, waxed to seal the piece and the bottom painted a darkened brass. The leather piece is an irregular (insert measurement).
