"The Power & Glory Day of the Dead Skull is my second collaboration with Ernesto Yerena on a Day of the Dead skull. Our first skull was more of a general homage to the Dia De Los Muertos style, but this one is more topical. If the idea of the Day of the Dead is to remember those souls who occupied the earth before us, then I can’t help but think about how those who come after us will remember us. Were we good stewards of the earth and the legacy of humanity? Ernesto and I have similar political views on war, greed, human rights, corruption, and the destruction of the planet, so we decided to make this skull about those subjects. I did a show exploring the dark sides of Power & Glory and this skull image is another cautionary call for us to think about our values and the legacy we will be remembered for."
