The image is of the Necronomicon star used in the film Evil Dead. The star has been hand punched and embroidered into pig skin leather. The piece was then custom colored and finished to mimic the look and feel of human flesh. The leather has then been affixed to a wooden plaque by distressed and painted eyelets and chains meant to harken back to the chained basement door. The piece has been spattered with a custom blood varnish designed to remain looking like wet blood. There is approximately 23 hours of work in this piece.
The plaque measures 6 7/8 inches by 5 inches by 1 inch. The wood has been stained an ebony black and hand waxed. The leather piece is an irregular 4 inches by 4 inches.
