Skulls & Flowers

Skull and flower, Cruce, livornoA few days ago, many different types of skulls popped out at the “Cruce Multibrand Store”, in “Via Ricasoli”.Skull, Cruce, livornoI wonder if it was something inspired by Halloween or even better by another holiday, “El Día de los Muertos” (The Day of the Dead).Skull doll, Cruce, livornoAnyway, there was a common theme of skulls and flowers.

The skull theme is popular where I live as well. And, that is saying a lot because I live pretty far removed from city life. I like the skull with the flower. Nice shot.

Skulls are very popular here too. And have been for awhile. Ask any teen-ager and you may get an answer. I just bought some ear-rings for Kylee with small skulls dangling and sparkling almost diamonds ifor eyes.

Flowers sweeten the deathly-ness of the skulls.
Goth Loli? Oi, I see I have a lot to catch up on.

Unless they are very late, I'd guess it's something else!

I don't know what to say. A skull in the center of an orchid... Hilda's link was an eye opener too.
