Local Richmond, VA artist, Bizhan Khodabandeh, created this dear skull image. It is a pen and ink illustration that was digitally colored. If you live in Virginia, you are probably familiar with the symbolism of the cardinals and dogwood. I love how these elements are incorporated into the deer skull, along with details commonly found on our forest floors. I love the seamless blend of life and death...the cycle of our world.
