Vanitas Disco Skull
A reminder to dance all the way to the grave in a limited edition by Ludvig Löfgren for Kosta Boda. A Vanitas is a "symbolic still life... meant as a reminder of the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death, encouraging a sombre world view (wikipedia: vanitas)." I must have a morbid streak because I've always been drawn to them without knowing what they were called.
florescent pink and neutral grey gorgeously cast in gypsum, each one hand engraved with its number and Leon's signature. Hot stuff!
Made during what seemed to be the age of skulls. Here is Michael Leon's metallic red flake hod-rod skateboard take on the ultra cool live-fast-die-young iconography of modern bad boys.
Michael Leon's individually hand-poured skulls come in many flavors, this one has a .5mm black rubber coated finish. Makes me smile.
Michael Leon continues to pour out more cool looking skulls, this one is perfect for almost any occasion.
