This is my first project post, so I hope this is okay. Dioramas are such a cool way to display things and get creative. This is the first one I've tried and I have ideas for more. One day I was daydreaming about Houdini and his death. I know that some magicians will swallow keys that they can bring up to use in escape tricks. I wondered...







The skeleton is about 12 inches long. I got the moss, roses and some of the keys from the craft store. Some of the keys I had because I collect them.

Very Cool!
I must say it's one of the most original ideas I've seen in a long time, how/where do you display it?

I love this. Your color choices are perfect, and the lush/organic texture of the moss next to the smooth/macabre skeleton is just amazing.

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.
