Human skulls have traditionally been used by Western artists as a way of understanding anatomy and, in completed works, as momento mori, or reminders of death. That is, reminders that we will all die and that all the great works we attempt will pass to dust.

This is a multicolor print. I used multiple blocks as well as reduction block techniques. I overprinted the background with the same block several times to achieve a rich depth of color. In addition, I fuzzed the edges by both thinning the ink on the block and uneven rubbing in an effort to get a somewhat painterly look. Because of these techniques, each one is unique while sharing a similar look.

The image size is 10x8 inches (25.4 x 20.32 cm) on a piece of kitakata paper 19x12 inches (48.26 x 30.48 cm). This print will ship unmatted and unframed. That allows you to choose both how much unprinted paper is exposed and which frame, if any, you want.

I am happy to work with you to arrange shipping if you live outside the United States,
