Golden Bones - Drifting Skeleton - Original Artwork


The story behind the artwork

Kristjana has taken her acclaimed Skeleton artwork to the next level, creating a stunningly unique pair of original three-dimensional artworks, each rich with fine and bejewelled embroidery pieces as well as intricate giclée paper motifs. Golden and Violet Bones explore the contradictions associated with being human; from riding high with a mental clarity and spring in the step in one moment, to being thwarted and momentarily immobilised, burdened by the weight of uncertainty in the next. These bones, these ruins of the imagination, are home now to fantastical creatures of sea and air, evolving metaphors for the soul within.  Plants grow from cadaverous bones, breathing new life and creating a stunning composition of colour and shape. .  

Embrace the colours of the sun, the earth, heat and light. A pair of golden fish encircle the skull, swimming down towards a tropical display of warmth and vitality - the hummingbird and orchid breathing life to the area where the heart is absent.  Trees flourish from the pelvis as swinging arms graze bejewelled insects and tiny butterflies.  A magenta bee tickles the tibia while at the restless feet sits a seductive heron, a symbol of stability and wisdom.
