Mexican Boy & Like Me You'll Be by Angelique Houtkamp

Okay, okay.. I'll take my "skulls are so 2007" statement back. At least for painted ceramic baby skulls.

The precious little crania assembled here are the work of Angelique Houtkamp - better known as a tattoo artist and illustrator possessed by colouful and immaculately styled vintage sideshow ladies.

And since you've all seen her work a gazillion times in arty fashion mags and fashionable art mags (... as if there was still a noticeable difference between the two..), I thought I'd introduce you to some of her rarer published sculptural work instead.

Sadly, I don't think any of these beautiful ceramic baby skulls will actually be on show at Houtkamp's Folies les femmes exhibition at Nelly Duff in London, but that's what Wurzeltodâ„¢ is here for, after all: To give you an illusion of all the shiny things you can never see - let alone buy. Because you're all constantly broke. Yep.

N.B.: Apparently this is only a 2-day event; unless the exhibition dates on the website are wrong. Hmmm...
