The Tarot contains most, if not all, of the traditional human archetypes, as such it acts as a bridge that connects consciousness and unconsciousness. It also can be seen as a means to achieve a better understanding of the self and of the journey of the individual through life. Life and death walk hand in hand together. The tension between the two reinforces the duality of existence.

The Bone Tarot proposes a new expression of an ancient system and explores each archetype of the Major Arcana of the Tarot through found objects and assemblage referencing life and death. Each piece has individual meaning and together they complete a conceptual puzzle. Bones act as mirrors that reveal to us, with their silent language, the journey into our own depths.
