"The Skull Is Just Below The Skin"

Edition of 25 unique stencil pieces, painted on 1940s reclaimed redwood, torn from the side of my house. Work will arrive ready to hang. The Poem was written by the late Peter Monk, a dear family friend and amazing artist and songwriter, who made art and wrote songs for The Grateful Dead and many others. The stencil is retired. The redwood is gone. This edition will not be reproduced.

The skull is just below the skin
the dark below the day
