The Behind The Skull design features a half skull, with an odd combination of beautifully frightening eyes, yet no other signs of life to be found.
The human skull holds many meanings in many different cultures. This particular skull is interesting because it has a few peculiarities.
The most obvious being that this guy has eyes, beautiful eyes in fact. A creepy, yet alluring stare that seems to draw one in. The eyes alone make the design interesting, but also notice that the mouth has somewhat of a grin about it?
It looks as though someone is wearing a mask, though there is no one there, it is as if there is a mix of life inside of a symbol of death.
Though the actual symbol of the human skull has been found as ‘cool’ over the years, the history of the meanings behind the symbols are incredibly interesting! Here is, according to the folks at Wikipedia.org (and happens to be one of my favorite stories about the half skull) a detail of the use of the half skull symbol in history!
‘In Elizabethan England, The Death’s-Head Skull, usually a depiction without the lower jawbone, was emblematic of bawds, rakes, Sexual Adventurers and prostitutes; The term Deaths-Head was actually parlance for these rakes, and most of them wore half-skull rings to advertise their station, either professionally or otherwise. The original Rings were wide silver objects, with a half-skull decoration not much wider than the rest of the band; This allowed it to be rotated around the finger to hide the skull in polite company, and to reposition it in the presence of likely conquests.’ ~Wikipedia
This design is beautiful in a very odd way. Most would not see a skull and find anything attractive about it, but then there are those that tend to not only find skulls cool, but also see them as more of a symbol of life than death and as you have read above, some even once found them as a symbol of sex… In a way.
