Running With Teeth And Bone

In creating the Seal People, a fierce Celtic tribe from the North of Britain, the production team was given creative freedom and historical parameters. The idea was that seals would be both available and totemic for the tribe. Costume designer Michael O'Connor explains, “The boots and coats are made of fake seal skin which was dear skin shaved and dyed and painted to look like seal.” Further intricate jewelry and hair pieces were created. “The head pieces were designed to be worn by warriors, made and decorated with seal bone,” O’Connor points out. “The necklaces are made of teeth and bone.”
