The filigree design over the skull symbolizes ever growing renewal over the ghost of the past. This is the original design as featured on Kickstarter. It became their #1 most funded sculpture project of all time. Small is pictured sitting in the hand. See pic of all 3 sizes together for comparison.
A replica of Cobb's totem from the film "Inception". As a below review has noted, and from my own version, the top works very well, and spins upwards of 90 seconds before toppling. You just might be in a dream.
