This astonishing sculpture forms part of Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery. The Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mortin 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.
JESS I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO SEE THIS SCULPTURE IRL WHEN WE GO
please be kind to insects. carry moths outdoors and step over ant hills when possible. help bees out of puddles and pools and direct others to the nearest safe surface when they land on your shoulder. they are just tiny kids trying to navigate a big world.
