My first still-life was a tribute to Poe. The bones are from a real black cat, I know it because his name was Queen and he was my cat, he died 3 years ago. We buried him in the garden. And the skull are from a sheep. My favourites Poe's Writings are The Black Cat and The Raven. 

All my academic works were made with the sight-size method, include this one.
