extraordinary 17th century reliquary containing an incredible papier-mâché skull with real human teeth.

a label says: CAPUT S. LUCII MART.

The showcase consists of a whitewashed wooden cabinet with an oxidized silver wooden frame. The glass is still the original one full of bubbles. The skull that I remember is made of papier-mâché and set on a pillow embroidered with threads and metallic stars. Extraordinary charming object.
the wax seals to the authorities of the time are still present

natural size of the PAIPER MACHE skull
