207. Stump(ed) Skull

Charcoal on Tree Stump (approx. 3ft x 3ft). The bark had been falling off a large old tree near my house for a while so the city came by the other day and cut it down. The white underneath the charcoal is a large "D" that they spray painted on it, I'm not sure what it means, anyone know?

Maybe the D stands for dead? You know how bureaucracy goes - nothing's official until it's stamped or somehow legitimised by tons of paperwork.

Weird note: if you crop the image a little at the top, the sidewalk will form a cross in the background. Even with that, I doubt my mother would like the picture. I'll send her a link and check ;)

Happy Skullidays!

D for 'done'?

It's good to see someone take an ugly old stump and turn it into a deathly work of art. Maye D stands for Dig up. They may come back later to grind it up and dig it out of the ground. Your skull is a memorial to the loss of a living organism. Bravo!
