Bones as a metaphor are very important because they convey our mortality and yet suggest permanence: flesh decays, bones fossilize.

The bones I own:

  • the ones in my body - toothwise, they’re not doing so hot.
  • a cow skull from Ebay
  • a blesbok skull purchased from Paxton Gate
  • a…. another cow skull? well, a skull of unknown origin
  • some beautiful big boy vertebrae, truly the most aesthetic of bones
