Not only is the most metal skull we have ever had, they are extremely rare for us to come across. This beautiful specimen is just as at home over your mantel as it would be at an underground black metal show. But what is this truly unique looking specimen? Glad you asked:
Jacob rams have graced the large estates and country homes of England for many centuries. Their impressive horn, black and white faces, and spotted bodies have no doubt contributed to their popularity and survival. Their actual origins are not known; however, documentation throughout history indicates that spotted, or pied sheep, may have originated in what is now Syria some three thousand years ago. Pictorial evidence traces movements of these sheep through North Africa, Sicily, Spain and on to England. There are many romantic stories about them being direct descendants of the flock of sheep acquired by Jacob during the time he worked for his father-in-law, as mentioned in the Bible (Genesis 30), or that they were washed ashore from shipwrecks during the attempted invasion of the Spanish Armada during the reign of Elizabeth I.
This particular skull has a split growth horn due to a genetic mutation. While it isn't what nature intended for the horn to look like, we think it's awesome.
