ABOUT THE WORK

Inspired by the scandal involving a large fashion house in their cruel method (allegedly) of killing crocodiles for their skin. This is a real crocodile skull with 22k gold leaf on a metal stand. The skull is sourced from French suppliers who use the same crocodile farms as these fashion houses. I pay homage in honoring these animals in their death, making a statement with the art entitled "This is not a handbag". NO ANIMALS WERE EXPRESSLY HARMED IN CREATING MY ART.
