COMPOSITE _ Victorian Vanitas

Postby Didereaux » Sat Apr 29, 2017 11:13 am

(see post 'Vanitas Moment' this site for explanation of vanitas. Vanitas Moment

This one is more photographic based than the previous two I have posted. The photo is of some ornaments in my wifes' Bird Buffet Garden. All I had to do was add the tiny skull in the Victorian-style fairy's hands. Are they truly immortal? Are they really large and that is a humans skull. ...and what does a brass parrot have to do with all this? Oh the possibilities are simply staggering! :lol:

I love garden fairies and trolls, there's just something about them that reminds me of something past. The possibilities really are simply staggering! S-

Nice job on the composite. Without being told, wouldn't have known.

Failure means you tried. Success means you need to set higher goals for yourself.
