New Collage

They gave him a seashell: "So you'll learn to love the water."
They opened a cage and let a bird go free:
"So you'll learn to love the air."

They gave him a geranium: "So you'll learn to love the earth."
And they gave him a bottle sealed up tight.
"Don't ever, ever open it. So you'll learn to love mystery."

-Eduardo Galeano

Artwork - 5 x 7 mixed media collage.
Last night I was in the mood to collage again.
The skull is my photograph taken with a disposable camera; the lens was obscured with clear nail polish. And the skull? Well, it is a real human skull...a medical skull which belongs to a friend.
