Hovering Skull and Shark Jawbones

Hovering skull and shark jawbones, surreal art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Man Vs Shark.

To each side of the skull is half a shark jawbone. They come from a strange looking creature called the Port Jackson shark (here’s the Wikipedia entry).

Their form is really interesting (the bones that is, though the animal itself is too), and the perfect subject for a high contrast still life.

Before I started my skull art mission, I did another image based just on the skull jaw.
