This brooch refers to characters with super powers invented in popular science-fiction.
The fact that this Super Hero is made of bones questions on the ephemeral and illusory aspect of life and beliefs about our timelessness.
Each bone of the skeleton and the skull are hand-made in silver and are jointed with rings so they can move.
The outfits are made of an aluminium black enamelled armour.
The mask is in black painted silver.
This piece is made with a brooch pin, closed with a pin protector in silver.
Size: 8,5 × 4 × 1 cm
After 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.
