Skull and bones motifs are a dime a dozen. The ram skull created by Dutch-born artist Erik Smeets offers viewers something a little different, in that he redesigns the motif into a candle-holding trophy. Thanks to the cracked wall in the background, the picture tells us its own special story. The establishment of an authentic horn structure, the cracked wall texture, and the extremely detailed masking nonetheless provide a number of challenges for Erik.
