U.S. photographer and installation artist Spencer Tunick, whose primary medium is large groups of naked people, arranged this installation at Los Senderos Villages in San Miguel de Allende municipality, Guanajuato State, Mexico to mark the Day of the Dead.
This astonishing sculpture forms part of Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery. The Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El beso de la muerte in Spanish) dates back to 1930. A winged skeleton bestows a kiss on the lips of a handsome young man: is it ecstasy on his face or resignation? Little wonder the sculpture elicits strong and varying responses from whoever gazes upon it.
