Lace and Rainbow Skulls

Our friend Mario Martinez Pitarch from Barcelona revisits a couple of originals in a whole new way. His lace skull is a new edition of Noah's 109. Lace Skull.

And I hope Mario doesn't mind but I have dubbed this piece his "Rainbow Rorshach Skull" because it reminds me so much of Noah's 222. Rorshach Skull.

Once again this proves that skulls don't always have to be bony and brittle or bloody and gory. There are many ways to accentuate that cranium within all of us. Thanks for the reminder, Mario.

That rainbow skull is beautiful! Both are, really, but the rainbow really kicked me.

The rainbow one also looks like a butterfly to me. Very soft and bold at the same time.

I have posted this skull on my wall next to a poem I wrote yesterday. The poem compares poetry writing to lace making. This is for those of you who can read Hebrew...

אֲנִי מַקִישָה בְּאֱצְבּעי
עַל השולחן
סוֹפֶרֶת הַבָרוֹת
מכפילה וּמְקצרת שורות
כמו תופרת מנוסה
המודדת סרטי תחרה
לבגד כלולות
נותנת לַמִלִים לַשֵאת בִּדְממה
את המוסיקה
של השיר
