Ruth Bernhard ~Skull and Rosary,1945
In May of 1989 Bernhard said of the piece, “I have always had a deep awareness of the perfection of the skull as the protective cavity for the brain – the vessel of our universal intelligence. Unexpectedly, in my studio one night, I knew I had to make this image. It was impulsive, inevitable! Life and Death are here represented by the deer skull and the rosary.”
