Embracing Death

Description: A concept we all inevitably have to face. Part of the circle of life and necessary for human evolution, yet death still remains a difficult topic to comprehend. Inspired by Salvador Dali and Philippe Halsman’s photograph “In Voluptas Mors”, this sculpture depicts life embracing a skull as a symbol of death and aims to give the controversial reality of death an element of beauty.

This sculpture is an emotional snapshot of my life as a new father.
A moment in time one Thursday morning. I drifted off to sleep only to be awoken
by my son grabbing my fingers to help position the bottle better.
