I’m not a big “skull art” fan, but I dig this photograph of a wee butterfly (or is that a moth?) landing inside the eye socket of a human skull. The image, by photographer Marko Popadic, is called Oko (Polish for “eye”).
Image by an Iraqi artist taken in an orphanage. This little girl has never seen her mother, so she drew a mom on the ground and fell asleep with her. Such a sad picture. I can only imagine the heartbreak children like this feel.
Hour Glass Series: Skulls include wildcat, crow, vulture and vervet. The viewer can turn the hourglass and watch as the golden skull is slowly consumed by the black sand, adding a Momento Mori element. Each one-of-a-kind piece is names the amount of time
"For the Love of God", 2007 by Damien Hirst, is a platinum cast of a human skull encrusted with flawless diamonds. Set on the forehead is a large, pear-shaped light fancy pink diamond, called the Skull Star Diamond. The teeth are from the original skull.
