This piece was inspired by the archaeological discovery of a grave and an antique silver necklace found in the ground by my father.
I used it as an helmet that I connected to the rest of a skeleton.
Each bone of the skeleton are hand-made in silver and are jointed with rings so they can move.Size: W2 × H9,5 × L1 cmAfter several trips to India, I was really impressed by the omnipresence of death in this culture. This society accepts death like a natural process; it is perceived as part of humanity’s destiny, as a life’s cycle. Destruction, degradation is present everywhere and in every mind in daily life. During my contemplation of cremations, I realised that we are but small things on earth: only bones and ashes.
