 Carduelis carduelis

Carduelis carduelis

Mixed media, variable size framed relics
2011

 

The wing of a goldfinch, the encrusted cephalotorax of a spider crab, wintersweet seedcases which had been eaten by mice: limbs of animals and plants. I enclosed those mortal remains in golden frames, as it used to be done with relics of the Saints in the Catholic tradition.
