Just like the mexicans honor their dead with colour and joy, I try to do the same to all the beautiful but forgotten crochet works I reuse in my pieces.

The skull composition is mostly made out of doilies and the background of lace. All these materials are carefully handstiched to felt through a very thorough work especially the lace that took me forever to finish and was not as pleasant as creating the skull.

The work itself is attached to a mdf board and then framed.

I search for the frames I use in antique shops and try to get them in good condition. I don´t want to restore them because I feel that that would take the history and charm out of them. This one, because of its oval shape is always a very difficult one to find.

The back of the frame is covered with kraft paper and has a new golden metal hanger.

This piece took me 4 days to make but it was worth the time spend.

Enjoy!
