This wire and wood wall sculpture is at once whimsical and enchanting.
I started with a branch from the Curly Willow tree in my back yard. I wrapped it in 24 gauge
black annealed steel wire and attached three very detailed Day of the Dead wire sculpture skulls.
Each has a distinct personality and was hand bent with a lot of attention to detail.
The entire piece measures approximately 15 inches long and 7 inches high.
The individual skulls measure between 3 (7.6 cm) and 4 (10.2 cm) inches high and are approximately 2.5 (6.4 cm) inches wide.
This wire and wood sculpture was inspired by my love of all things Day Of The Dead. Dia de Los Muertos should be celebrated all year long as a reminder that it is great to respect those that came before and that, for now, all is good on this side of the grass.
