Surreal Abstract Jawbone and Stripes

Shark jawbone with geometric stripes, surreal abstract artwork in red and blue-green, by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Cherry Vitium.

That V-shaped bone is actually a shark jaw, or at least half of one. It’s an odd looking species named the Port Jackson shark.

As it looks like a V, I decided to give it a name starting with that letter, and I came across vitium in my search. It’s a Latin word meaning fault, crime, or defect, depending on where you look. I thought with cherry prefixed it had a nice poetic quality.
