Jim Skull and hypnotic jute

Like the moon, and animals, the skull has been a focus of artistic meditation since as long as our kind has had the luxury of taking a break from hunting and gathering.  This work feels both ancient and completely contemporary.  Jim Skull website has what seems like an endless variety of a meditative jute maze meandering through human history.

And then there is this…the opposite and equal reaction.  I, of course, really respond to the materials, both low on the craft totem pole, almost to the scout project level, which is why I find it captivating.
