This week’s photograph was taken at the French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle’s (1930-2002) current show at Le Grand Palais in Paris. The piece photographed, La Cabeza, is a giant skull covered with colored mirrors and stones that is large enough to walk into. The message the artist wanted to send with this work, which is reminiscent of Day of the Dead imagery, was hopeful – “La mort n’existe pas, life is eternal”. The exhibition runs through February 2, 2015.
