13 foot high chandelier by artist and sculptor Jodie Carey(website) made of 3,000 handcrafted plaster bones, now a part of the Richard Harris Collection here

“In this creation, Jodie Carey revisits the Dance of Death theme for the contemporary audience. The chandelier would fit into a grand building, but the plaster-cast bones hold no glory, reminding the viewer that the rich and the mighty meet the same fate as ordinary people. This modern reinterpretation of the vanitas theme shows how potent this idea remains in our own time.”
