STRAW CASTLE DESIGN "DEATH'S HEAD HAWKMOTH" BANDANA

The Death's Head Hawkmoth and its skull-like mark have induced feelings of uneasiness for ages, as evidenced by its appearance in works of fiction spanning more than a century. Most notably, the species appears in Bram Stoker's "Dracula" and replaced the more muted Black Witch moth in the movie adaption of "The Silence Of The Lambs." Straw Castle Design captures the creature in all its ominous glory in his "Death's Head Hawkmoth" bandana. The 22" x 22" bandana combines four of his expertly hand carved blocks in one cohesive piece, screen-printed with soft water-based inks on your choice of three different colored fabrics. Whether you would wear it as a traditional bandana, or hang it on the wall as a mini-tapestry, I definitely recommend ordering one (or all three). Mine came in the mail just the other day, you're sure to be impressed with the quality. You'll find all three color options in Straw Castle Design's Etsy store.
