Copper Impala

Maria D'Souza


Bead on bone

15 x 29 x 9 in.


About the Artwork

This regal impala is adorned and inlayed with copper that has been burnished from burnt orange to crimson with a jasper cabochon of orange and black that perfectly complements the copper diamond on the forehead. Beautiful patterns of seed beads with Bali silver findings. 21” polished horns that fade from tan to black sit atop this beautiful creature.


About the Artist

Using genuine animal skulls as the raw form, Maria D’Souza combines design, color, and dimension to create one of a kind pieces. Her beaded animal skull art is unique in that she does not view the form of the skull as a canvas that she is bound to. She views it more as a frame to create within. She uses semi-precious and precious stones, seed beads, Bali silver, patina copper, exotic leathers, and other materials to create patterns of symmetry, depth, and motion. Continually striving to create pieces that have never been done before her art constantly reflects the use of new materials and artistic techniques.
