From the beautiful and the colourful to the cheeky and downright disturbing, Faye Dowling's 'The Book Of Skulls' takes us on a pictorial skull-fuelled journey, depicting the various meanings, interpretations and portrayals of this timeless human symbol.
From the crystal skulls of Aztec civilastions to Shepard Fairey's controversial 'Obey' skull, and everything in between, Dowling explores the iconic status that the skull has acheived via a pletheora of expressive realms. Fashion, oil paintings, sculpture, tattooing or street art; skulls of all shapes and sizes are still representing themselves the world over, and you don't need a shovel and help from time team to discover to them.
