Making the ‘Fossilized Blues’



Sometimes you find materials that give you an instant idea. In this case I found two old horns that people in India use during weddings for playing very loud music.


I wanted to use them in a painting but they needed to be flat, so how to realize that? At first I was thinking of using an elephant, but maybe it is not very elegant to ask such a noble creature to sit on music!? Finally as you can sea in the picture above people repairing the road gave me a hand, old fashioned tonnage did the job!
