Skulls are also one of the recurring elements in Spoerri’s work. The Giardino holds a whole »Skull Chapel« (No. 26). Here, however, they are part of a macabre totemic bouquet. They are planted at the top of three tree trunks and adorned with a variety of asseçoires. For example, wooden kitchen devices decorate one of the heads. This has a dual effect: these banal objects comically disarm death on the one hand and on the other the whirls in the wood hold a formal resemblance to small crowns, making them a convincing head decoration when coloured in royal blue and gold.
