My warmest greetings to each one of you, I hope are very well. This illustration material represented a hard work of detail, I wanted to show you a little more of what you do, I hope you like.
What is the meaning of the illustration?
For many cultures worldwide the skull represents respect for the ancestors, because this is the way each body gets decomposing, you are of the culture you are, have money or not, be cute or ugly, we all have that inner form in our body.
The skull not only represents death or some negative feeling, do not be afraid, it is also the sign that someone lived and now is no longer with us but still in your heart. This sense of change and the rebirth of a new person is also a symbol of power and strength that each person possesses on life and death, learning from mistakes that will make you change course and be reborn in a new life.
The feathers harmonize at the aesthetic level and complement the concept representing freedom because the feathers are from the birds and these are free, other meanings are beauty, elegance and of course the ancestral indigenous culture, they are our Predecessors.

Also called Bone Head, is the name given to the set of bones that compose the skeleton of the head, formed by the bones of the face and skull, when it is stripped of flesh and skin. The word, as such, comes from the Latin calvados, which means ' skull '.
