can you give me my little skull?


In the words of Ricardo Dakota and his philosophies on life and the spirit, these words come to mind....

'It's so hard to ween yourself off thinking, but when the special exam comes you will not need any of this, not even your skull. Of course the exam, what is this exam? The nuts and bolts of this exam are a mystery, but the answer is the same regardless of the test, or the type of test or the questions we face.  There are so many extensive examinations of how this process works,but it all comes to this.....our bodies and our bones will be occupied by the hollow men, and that the true exam will reveal its disguise when we are ready to open the door to the spirit's sweet knowledge and experience of life .'

...............Knock Knock............


as they say in Spanish

¿me da mi calaverita? 

"can you give me my little skull?"

Agathis robusta


Smooth-barked Kauri at Lake Barrine, soaking up the stillness. These two beauties remind me of William Robinson landscape paintings with their bizarre sensation of vertigo, yes of falling up into the sky.

Check out this totally stunning exhibition by Darwin based artist Sarah Pirrie, Runoff 2012 at 24 Hr Art. I was a bit late getting a peak at this installation, but Sara's blog captures superbly the wonderfully intricate and delicate nature of the work and the ideas they provoke.
