Cremain Art

Alabama artist Sergio Protillo adds something a little special into his paint — cremains. People bring him the cremains of their loved ones, and he mixes them into some paint and creates a painting that's "like an additional memory to the person's life." He says one client cried when he saw his family member's cremain painting. []

Something for the exhibitionist in all of us.

What's with the third still picture? The figure's right arm looks like something else...

I like Heinlein's idea in "Stranger in a Strange Land." Make soup out of the deceased and serve it at the wake/party. (Well, I like it in principle. the realities might get complicated.)

Frank, that is horrible! But the painting idea is kind of nice in a way.

Sometimes, what people try to pass off as "art" just burns me up.
