although you welcome wisdom,
you perceive your end.

  1. Hi!
    That’s an interesting poster. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  2. Tis a bit scary to think of ourselves looking like that – hopefully in the distant future! Its fun seeing everyones D.O.D. ideas!

  3. Great art piece. It would be fun to do a self portrait like this!

  4. Very kool poster, very unique.

  5. I agree with Lyle in that we all are skeletons under this skin or ours and as scary as it may be, we will all one day be there. I think that Dia de Los Muertos has taught me to not be afraid as our souls will always be. I like your poster. Happy Sunday to you.

  6. you know what they say,
    death is the great equalizer.
    this poster is a great reality check to fan the flames of our passions and live life fullest in every moment!

  7. Great image…it would be interesting to do self portraits in this style.

  8. Your haiku fits the poster… and also got me googling Dr. Lakra. Interesting finds. Thanks for sharing! Helen

  9. I absolutely adore this piece. It never occurred to me that this could be a way to make a skull. I’ll have to try.

  10. Nice and interesting. Have a fabulous week.

  11. So beautiful!

    Hope you can come and see my YELLOW post. Thank you!

  12. Yes- this goes very well with what I posted today!

  13. A fascinating but disturbing poster! I guess it could be viewed as another symbol of yin and yang!

  14. This is brilliant. And I think it serves as a reminder to live in the moment. ;))

  15. We may be the ms universe in this world but if we are gone we look like the same. ^_^ Happy MOnday!


  16. It’s a little scary but it was done well.

  17. It is fitting with the Halloween holiday! A bit frightful for sure! Great capture and haiku. Happy Ruby Tuesday and have a great day!

  18. Great portrait. much is different, but that’s only on the outside we sang when I grew up.
    How come she got to keep both her eyes?

  19. Oh, my!! ;( Great for the season!!

  20. I guess there are just no words for this one, lol! So that’s what happens when you get too much sun, huh? 😉
