memento

As in "memento mori" perhaps, or perhaps this small ceramic skull-like head is just the usual sentimental kind of memento. It was made by my oldest son, who used to work a lot in clay, but hasn't done as much of that lately.

Wow--Liz. Amazing. It is so evocative--and so personal, I recognize your hands! Beautiful!

This is outstanding in a weird, hypnotic way--which means I DO love it!

Thanks. I think my own fascination with this drawing is the little skull head, which is appealing and horrifying to me at the same time. Generally I keep it on top of my bureau with jewelry and family photos.
