Stag and Butterfly Contemporary Vanitas Image - Print


In producing a contemporary vanitas image Mark has chosen a red deer skull to represent death, and the butterfly, with its short life span, to show the fragility of life and the inevitability of death.  The lighting is used to incredible effect, drawing the viewer around the detail of the imagery used.
