Home Decor for a Temporary Life

This is a project I made for CRAFT. Here’s the link: how to make a photorealistic latch hooked rug.

The skull image is from the famous Hans Holbein painting, “The Ambassadors.” It only comes into proper perspective when you look at it from the correct angle. Skull imagery was common in these sorts of paintings and usually meant to be a reminder of our mortality and temporary existence and to scare folks into going to church.

I thought that this anamorphic skull would make a nice rug because in the painting it looks like it is lying on the floor, and also I thought it would be nice to make a reminder of my inevitable death for around the house.
