Cow's Skull with Calico Roses

Georgia O'Keeffe, 1931

Georgia O'Keeffe said of the sun-bleached bones and skulls she found in the desert: "To me they are as beautiful as anything I know. To me they are strangely more living than the animals walking around. The bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive on the desert even though it is vast and empty and untouchable and knows no kindness with all its beauty. ”
