Species Name: Lonchura punctulata

CommonName: Spotted munia Finch

Origin: Southeast Asia

Size: 3.5" Wooden Base x 4.5" high

A Spotted munia or scaly-breasted munia skeleon. The bones were carefully put together and beautifully displayed in a dome. Not only this is a cool art piece, but can also inspire you in your artworks, or to study the skeletal structure. The bird skeleton is highly adapted for flight. It is extremely lightweight but strong enough to withstand the stresses of taking off, flying, and landing. Because of this, birds usually have a smaller number of bones than other terrestrial vertebrates. Birds also lack teeth or even a true jaw, and instead have a beak, which is far more lightweight. Its name is based on the distinct scale-like feather markings on the breast and belly. This munia eats mainly grass seeds apart from berries and small insects. They forage in flocks and communicate with soft calls and whistles. The species is highly social and may sometimes roost with other species of munias. They are found in the south of Asia in tropical plains and grasslands. Breeding pairs construct dome-shaped nests using grass or bamboo leaves. Don't hesitate to contact me if you want the Skeleton in any specific position (as long as it fits inside the dome), and have a truly unique item created by you.

SULLEN CLOTHING

Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got it’s start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective”. As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from.
