Skull and Bow


Before the visit to the Taos Ski Valley I did have to do a little window shopping on the plaza. While walking past this leather shop I caught sight of this skull with it's red bow. How festive!

What a contradiction... Anyway, I'd love to have that skull without the red thing. :)

The red bow really catches the eye and draws attention. A nice contrast of color!

Lowell said...

Rather anachronistic but I like it. You have so many intriguing shops in Santa Fe. I'd have a hard time getting any work done!

Reminding Georgia O'Keeffe and her themes...Nice composition!

Without reading the other comments, I thought "very Georgia O'Keefe of you". Darn it, they beat me to the punch.

Nothing says "southwest" quite like one of those skulls. I am looking forward to sharing that special bottle of wine with you and Magpie!

It does catch one's eye doesn't it? At least they didn't place lights in the eye sockets...or maybe they should have.

The way you just toss out words like Taos Ski Valley sends me into a fit of jealousy.

Michelle a.k.a. Farmchick said...

Well yes...that would make a nice gift.

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

I like that a lot... if you could isolate the skull that would make a superb Christmas card for next year!
