Acclaimed tattoo artist Jun Cha has unveiled CAPO, a limited-edition skull sculpture made with premium Carrara marble. In preparation of this ambitious project, Jun went to great lengths to acclimate himself to this new medium, traveling to the mountains of the Apuan Alps to train under local masters. He learned that mining for Carrara marble is one of the world's most dangerous pursuits, with the quarry boss -- aka the Capo -- commanding a lineage that dates back beyond Michelangelo to ancient Rome. Check out a short film detailing Jun's creative process below.
The one-of-a-kind limited edition CAPO skull sculptures will be limited to just 25 units, each signed, numbered and packaged in a custom wooden box with a certificate of authenticity. Priced at $7,000, the sculpture is up for pre-order now at juncha.com, with delivery set for September 26th.
