Ritual

1920

Gold leaf and sheep bones.  I had a connection with burials / Egypt / ritual objects etc in my mind when making these.  Wealth doesn’t stop death and decay.

I think that I prefer the second one with a minimum amount of gold and the straight lines which contrast with the curve of the bone but may try rubbing away more surface on the first one.

  1. Like this and the subject matter.

    A good friend once said to me, life is not a competition to see who has collected the most stuff by the time they die. You can’t take all that material acquisition with you. Yet you can lead a life which creates a legacy for others of enlightenment and hope for the future.
