This is a collaborative project by Roman (13) and Coco (11). We have covered a horse skull in broken royal commemorative crockery. The collected crockery was mainly smashed by our little brother and because we live on a ship, so things often fall over! We chose a horse skull because the horse is a regal animal, associated with the Royal family and British pageantry. Tea drinking is also very English! We were inspired by the Aztec mosaic skull at the British Museum, and also by Damien Hirst's 'For the Love of God' diamond encrusted skull.
