Skull With Bones as Teeth – Black and White

Skull with bones as teeth. Surreal art in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Homo Spidercus. Another light-hearted faux-Latin title.

The base skull photograph was taken in the Catacombs of Paris. Just part of the remains of over six million people there.

There were several iterations of this picture before it progressed to what you see. There was something not quite right about the old ones, though.

When that happens it’s like an unbearable itch that needs to be scratched. I see potential that exceeds the actual work. But that’s just part of the process, and generally with perseverance an outcome I’m happy with is achieved.

There’s also a version in red and gold called Homo Spidercus Red.
