A floor with 100,000 porcelain skulls to reflect on life

Do not be alarmed, because despite the skulls, the environment was far from being macabre. On the contrary, white and natural light help the spirit to rest. Relax and reflect, that's what Nino Sarabutra , The creator of this exotic floor with delicate skulls, had in mind. The artist invites everyone to think about their lives in their installation which they called"What will you leave behind?".

The skulls are everywhere, not just on the floor, but on the table, chairs and even on the pillows. Undoubtedly, the message is powerful and puts the mind to think. In the background, the famous phrase of Steve Jobs sums up well the kind of reflection and conclusions that these caveirinhas can bring to their life:

" ... almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. "~ Steve Jobs

Translation:

"... almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of shame or failure - these things simply disappear on the face of death, leaving only what is really important. Remembering that you will die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking that you have something to lose. You're already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart"~ Steve Jobs
