The Skull

Skulls make quite nice images, don't you think? Here are a selection of my favourite skulls. The last is a diamond-encrusted skull by artist Damien Hirst.

Gorgeous! I'm getting ready to knit G/Son a pirate sweater w/ a lovely skull and crossbones.

I'm seeing the skull image, sometimes with crossbones, sometimes without, around more and more. I don't know whether it is an attractive image, or an evocative image, or what, but it obviously strikes some kind of chord, because it is so popular with people. I just saw some more examples by two entirely different contemporary artists. I'll see if I can hunt them down.
