Step into the captivating world of "Tiki Bones," where the fusion of Hawaiian tikis and the enigmatic allure of Day of the Dead Mexican Skeletons, also known as Calacas, takes center stage. This original artwork, crafted on a birch panel, transcends the ordinary with its layers of acrylic paint, intricately outlined with the bold strokes of One Shot enamel.

At the heart of the piece is a spectral tiki, bathed in hues of purple, blue, and white, perched atop a weathered stump with a skull carved into its surface. The composition not only captures the essence of ancient traditions but also invites viewers to unravel the mysteries concealed within the skeletal form.

The canvas extends beyond its edges, as a custom frame, meticulously crafted to echo the painting, envelops the artwork. At the top of the frame, a skull is intricately carved, setting the tone for the entire piece. Crossed lap joints adorned with rope details grace the corners of the frame, while a rich, dark brown stain adds an element of sophistication.

Measuring 14x24 inches without the frame, "Tiki Bones" transforms into a commanding presence with the frame, bringing the total size to 27x37 inches. The background, created with a squeegee, adds a dynamic element, resembling a blur that cleverly creates an illusion of depth, drawing the viewer into the enigmatic narrative.

This is not merely a painting; it's the inception of a signature character, a convergence of two cherished subjects. A piece that beckons collectors to become part of its story, "Tiki Bones" is a visual journey, a testament to the artist's ability to breathe life into the inanimate and create a timeless fusion of cultures and artistic techniques.
