The Krisztianna Muertita Wall Mounts Contemplate Mortality

There is something beautifully morbid about the Krisztianna Muertita sculpture series.

All of these beautiful wall mounts are inspired by the seasons or a stage of life, such as the Spring Meurtita which is bedecked in fragile blossoms, forever remembering this fleeting season. Each sculpture looks like a woman's head with flowers for hair and antlers, making it seem like someone has hunted down several forest nymphs and mounted their heads for their trophy collection. The faces are painted to look like Mexican sugar skulls, which are meant to celebrate the Day of the Dead, giving these sculptures a haunting feeling that contrasts with the brightly painted patterns and cheerful flowers.

All the sculptures in the Krisztianna Muertita series have closed eyes, as though they are peacefully contemplating life and death.
