    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!

Giveaway: QWSTION Weekender Bag

Switzerland-based QWSTION have teamed up with fashion designer Julian Zigerli to produce a special version of their Weekender bag and they sent us one. The iridescent surface displays an array of colours when light shines directly at it. Note: We shot the image above with a flash, and the colours have not been manipulated. Have a look below to see what the bag looks like with the lights on.

There’s also a second set of straps so the bag can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack. We have one of these special bags to give away to our readers so if you wanna snag it, leave a comment below and tell us the first place you’ll travel with it.
