Memento mori?

A diversion into a drawing from my Academy days in Brussels in which I recognise two hallmarks of that particular studio .. one is our Prof's sadistic liking for setting subjects in or in front of filthy pieces of plastic sheeting - (here delicately interpreted, I must say) and the other is the note of dissonance provided by the skeleton.. just in case we were tempted to turn it into something too pretty..  (model with skeleton, 1998, A2 charcoal pencil on paper)
