DEATH MASKS - What's on Your Wall Wednesday
Grits and Glamour offers inspiration for your walls and mine. She is the muse that inspired me to post some of the art on my walls.
My husband's uncle is an artist over in Denmark. Every year he gives us a piece of art for New Year's to wish us a Happy one. I thought I'd share a couple pieces he's given us.
The last time my husband, Lars, was in Denmark, his uncle wanted to immortalize his face with a Death Mask. When Lars came home, his brother wanted to make masks of the rest of the family. My daughter had a cold and couldn't do it because you have to put straws up your nose to breath, when the plaster is poured over your face. We still have to get hers done. But here are the rest.
This piece of art was a present from my husband's uncle, on our last trip to Denmark. I call this The Balloon Trees.
We've bought a couple pieces of art too. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
