The title of this picture is Minerva Black.
It’s another exercise in post hoc completism, as I now like to match my color images with a black and white version (and this composition was made a while ago now).
Though the bones are based on a photograph, they’re more in the role of a charcoal sketch here. Not just because of the added texture, but they’re enlarged from a low-resolution photograph. That means they’re completely lacking in detail and sharpness. But that was what I had in mind at the time of creation; call it a perverse and deliberate rejection of photographic perfection.
The color version is called simply Minerva.
