Good eye simon_xw,

:cheer:

Alchemus Maximus is about the only statue I have that had enough height & a skull I could tie the mask around...

so no, BLACK MAGNOLIA,'tis NOT an Alchemy item; I was just trying to show off the mask .
If I read the the label inside correctly , it came from Venice; birthplace of the carnival the mask is often worn to--their version of Mardi Gras... I think (or assume) most places have a mardi gras/carnival type celebration before ASH WEDNESDAY...

It was stage the mask on Maximus or the Terminator endoskull.

planning to buy a blank mannequin head to keep the mask on...

oh, ok! xD I missed the fact that it was a mask and from the other people's comments it seemed they assumed Alchemy too. :silly: I noticed the Alchemus Maximus bits, but thought Alchemy might have done or licensed a similar statute with the Plague Doctor - I don't follow all their licensed stuff, especially not the statutes/figurines.

I've been to Venice and we here in Croatia also celebrate carnival (we don't do Mardi Gras), so I'm familiar with the masks and traditions. ;)

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

My most recent find on eBay:

NOT ALCHEMY GOTHIC. However it should have been; it would have been MUCH better quality...




sorry for all the pics;just wanted show off all the angles.

It is hard to see some of them, but the reason for the largest pic is the reason I bought it. It's the astrological signs.

I even circled one of the better looking signs #LIBRASrule


:silly:

THIS item is very near and dear to my heart
:kiss:



In total, I have purchased 4 of these pewter roses in my life (that's roughly 1 rose every decade)
2 taken by ex-girlfriends,and one broke on me...
Fingers crossed for the saftey of this one
:kiss:


I also found a skull that was shaped like an egg...
....meh
only bought it because it lookd like a knock-off of the ALCHEMIST design

anyone interested in seeing/buying it; let me know

Oh that rose is gorgeous! The egg...looks a little odd to me. Kinda cool, but there's something not quite right with it.

Death's kiss was soft as rose petals...

wow! that pewter rose is beautiful! :)

The skull egg is cool, although not my cup of tea. It does remind me of the movie Coneheads. haha :silly:
