Metal Skulls

Gille Monte Ruici, from Paris, France, is back with skulls he created with kitchenware utensils, lids, and brooches. He explains, "The vanities of the 17th century represented in paintings meant: memento mori ( remember you that you're going to die). I illustrate in a contemporary way by: Some day you're going to can be because of the junk food." Too true. I like seeing a modern take on memento mori. His work reuses every day objects as reminder that life is short and to live well.

We want to share your skull art! Be a part of the Skull-A-Day project. Details are HERE.
