To honour is to Love.
Four out of six of these skulls were collected in the wild cat hills, west of Calgary where the bulls and elk died a natural death and the two buffalo skulls came from a farm in Central Alberta.
With much gratitude and love for the animals of this Earth, Sarah paints the skulls of six animals who’s lives will be remembered.
*Note the names of the skulls to understand the story that speaks to how this series came to be.
