Tribal Suicide 1

Image

These don’t really have names, except for the title of the series. Some of you know this already, but: The theme of the series is suicide, and the motif for each is taken from an African tribal mask. They are a way for the wearer to achieve an altered state of being. I found images of masks online to use as a starting point for each piece, so there is, in fact, a certain element of authenticity in each one. This one uses live .357 rounds, and cut-out sections from a box of Hoppe’s gun oil.
