Purging The Darkness gilt rabbit skull original art

$155.00Price

This piece is a modern day tribute to the lost art of mourning and death reverence/acceptance. A rabbit skull carefully cleaned and preserved is gilt in a swathing of metal scrolls and flourishes. Her eyes replaced by 1920's sequined and faceted black beads placed upon a true antique nest of hand-pleated ribbon all sewn with care to a vegan leather panel on starched felt and backed with embossed black velvet. This work is meant to remind us of our great equalizer, our own fate. Not to shock or disturb, but rather to remember that the inevitability of our death is what makes life worth living.
