Artist's Description

Don’t deem my spirit fled (Springbok skull)


16_10_2016
Ink sketch and colour wash on Amedeo 200gsm
.
Start not—nor deem my spirit fled:
In me behold the only skull,
From which, unlike a living head,
Whatever flows is never dull.

Author: Lord Byron
.
A sketch of one of the skulls in my skull collection – this is of a Springbok skull (Antidorcas marsupialis) I found in the veld while walking along a pathway on Spring Farm in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa.

To me, skulls don’t depict death and decay, but tell a story of some life lived somewhere, a soul that experienced life to the full and, like all things inevitable, came to an end, whether happy or sad. Within the confines of those bones lies the story of this Springbuck’s journey in the African bushveld, and perhaps the birth of many an off-spring. I hear him say, “I lived, I loved, I quaffed like thee; I died: let earth my bones resign”.
