The inspiration (I think) for this display.
This is sort of a goof I threw together one morning. I found this resin figurine in a thrift store and spent a whopping $3.95 for it
though it originally cost $9.95 based on the label stuck to the bottom. These things are usually seen in a grandmother's curio cabinet collecting dust next to the equally dusty Hummels and crystal animals. I bought it for another project that I have since
forgotten about and, during an infrequent straightening out of my work area, it was close to being tossed when I came up with the idea before you.
Simply put, “The Last Dance” will be Death for all of us and substituting a skull for the figurine's Marie Antoinette type of head seemed a not so clever way of mine to illustrate the event. I think I may have gotten
the idea from an optical illusion painting by C. Allan Gilbert called “All Is Vanity” of a woman seated before a mirror, brushing her hair. If you pull back a bit, the scene morphs into a skull (see photo at right).
