"The difficulty to think at the end of day,
When the shapeless shadow covers the sun
And nothing is left except light on your fur..."
--Wallace Stevens, A Rabbit As King of the Ghosts
This delicate piece features a real rabbit skull adorned with intricate blue and white floral details, along with a pair of real preserved ears and stuffed with ribbons and dried florals.
Although there does seem to be a lot going on in this work, it has its own quiet air of serenity brought on by the repetition of white and blue throughout.
The saucer measures about 5.5 inches across and the entire piece stands at about 6 inches tall.
