This is another iconic image perused by artist throughout history. Originally most art was religious driven, but it's not this aspect that attracts me it's the fact it's aperson with bird wings which looks so natural as we have lived with these images for so long. What would our imagination come up with for a celestial being today.
PUGILIST AND THE SWIFT
Man has had a fascination with the human skull whether in art or medicine. With its prominence in fashion and such works as Damien Hirst's diamond encrusted pieces, I find myself bombard with this image from all directions, so have embraced it as another traditional subject for artists to play with.
