One of the questions I get asked frequently is, why do we include skulls and skeletons in our designs? I am sure my answer may surprise some of you. I am reminded every time I see a skeleton that we are all the same underneath. That popularity status, income bracket, what we drive, where we live, whether we are married or single, race, creed or religion doesn’t matter. The common denominator is that we are all human.
You see, what a skeleton signifies to me is that we are all equal under our skin.
Beauty is not only skin deep but even deeper. Beauty comes from within. When I look at a skull or a skeleton I am reminded that we are all human. We all arrived in this world the same way, and none of us are exempt from death. I am also reminded that we only have this life to make a difference here on earth.
The one thing that sets us apart is our choices. We can choose to be a productive member of society, or we can choose to not be.
I guess what I am trying to say is, we are more than our skin, and who we are comes from within.
