Skull With Centipede as Spine

Skull with a centipede spine. Surreal art in red and green Christmas colors, by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Christmas. Quite a wry appellation here, solely in reference to the image’s colors. They’re loosely Christmasy, but I more just found it amusing to call such a horrifying picture Christmas.

The underlying centipede photo was taken at a museum if I recall. Likely the skull too, though I’m struggling to pinpoint the location.

Hard to know exactly what to do with a centipede photo normally. I think I found the perfect application here though. Just look at those spine-like curves put to such good use.

There’s a black and white version called Etiolated Christmas.
