Protection in our Bones

2016 acrylic on cardboard. 3' x 3' The inspiration for this work came from learning about the after-life beliefs of several eastern and western cultures. I was fascinated by the security and hope that promises of life-after-death have provided people for centuries. I wanted to make a piece that reflected that thought process, but also reminded the viewer of how at the end, regardless of our beliefs, we are all bones.
