Over the years, our many Welsh builders have been requesting this amazing skull to build for their Mari Lwyd tradition and given it's unique shape, it was certainly a challenging design. A horse skull is a strange thing to behold. Looking at it on its own, it takes on an almost otherworldly appearance. A creature from some place like ours?

Whether you are after a creepy Halloween costume, or wish to celebrate the incredible Welsh tradition or Mari Lwyd, this is the perfect addition to your skull mask collection.
