  • Peter

    I love the last skull, it’s really nice

  • Samara

    The two skeletons holding hands is inspiring. To see the love between them that lasts after death, it’s really touching.

  • Samara

    The two skeletons holding hands is really inspiring. Just to see the love and/or partnership between two people, even after life, is very moving.

  • The first is my favorite! This is really great work!
