Skull Reliquaries

These decorative works have more of a commercial appeal, I have always been interested in skulls and their representation....the materials are plastic box form with painted wood interior and model skull to scale painted....the gold swirls break up the space behind and move the eye into the center, reinforcing the skull...these pieces are painterly but really embody the "object." The skull does move and sway with interaction, the scale is small and intimate, 3 x 5 can fit in tiny spaces and creates a beautiful shadow on the wall!
