Day 0019

More of the skeleton cast. I had the idea to put a bunch of artificial grapes that I have around its head as a sort of Bacchus reference. That’s the sort of thing us arty academic types like doing. Usually, some meaning would be implied but in this case it was just that I wanted to add some other colors to the scene and add some complexity to force myself to get to the point through forcing velocity on myself. Those grapes are a lot of fun. They’re sort of antique, too. Wire, bendable stems, but the leaves are some sort of cloth and the grapes are painted wood.

If you’d like to interpret this as a memento mori with a vinous theme, be my guest, but I swear it was just something I thought might look cool. I was right, too.
