C-Rations: 0C10110

This week’s offering is a traditional Calavera.

“De marzo de segundo” skull approx. 1" X .75" x 1" oven fired clay painted with rinestone accents on found action figure body

Tradition C says:

It being “All Souls Day” I was inspired this week by the great art that centers on the “Day of the Dead” celebrations that happen at this time of year. I wanted to offer my celebration to someone from my team who I lost this year. I found a headless/handless superhero action figure in the street near where I live and thought it would be a fitting tribute to them since they were hero like to me. The background is the remembrance card from their funeral service.

Remember each Monday during the 3.0 year I am posting an original skull design. My weekly offerings are nothing compared to the one-a-day massive project done by the Skullmaster in 1.0, but hopefully you will find some nourishment in these weekly offerings.

Wow! It's like a Tusken Raider superhero of Michael Jackson fame. I really like the combination of components. It's a wonderful tribute!

Very cool! I love homebrew action figures.

Awesome picture it looks like it was taken at the Sears portrait studio with one of those fake back drops.
