Dance macabre

Dance macabre is a picture which makes a reference to the dance macabre motif, mentioned in the title , which is  a procession of death. It relates to the cycle of human's life , from infancy to the old age (the dancing crystal skulls placed on tiny children's bodies). The skulls, being made of small artificial crystals , make a reference to the famous  skull by Damien Hirst, the most expensive work of art. and relate to the present-day consumerism and losing oneself in the pursuit of material goods.
