Michaël Cailloux’s interpretation of this animal king from the “Art Nouveau” era certainly brings to mind René Lalique. The same subtle sculpture, the same love for nature and with the same fascination for metamorphosis. The craft on the veins of the wings is perfection, absolute lace-like meticulous work. Then when the eyes gaze off into the rigorousness of the piece, there seem to be something of a “Paris of yesterday” floating in the air. Maybe it’s Sarah Bernard’s ghost.

This skull seems to have recently escaped from one of the many Mexican “Day of the Dead” festivities. It surely portrays Michaël Cailloux’s research and work around the theme of death. A joyful death, where sadness has no place. A death that can sometimes be more lively than life itself, to which this smiling skull is a testament. The artist always goes back and forth between classic and modern, thus revisiting in his own fanciful way the vanities of previous centuries. Aquatint etching
