Impress the music lover in your life with this print from Michael Spencer Jones – one of the leading photographers in rock history.

A sculpture makes an extravagant gift as well as a talking point for the home. Through his art, Magnus Gjoen is known for delving into the balance between power and fragility, life and death, and beauty and destruction. By teaming the macabre or the deadly with exquisite patterns or paintings, Gjoen reminds us of humanity’s capacity for creating beauty one minute, and total devastation the next.
In There are Some Dead Who are More Alive Than the Living, Gjoen’s sculpture of a skull serves as a modern momento mori – reminding us of the inevitability of death. By adorning his skull with the pattern of 18th century Delftware, the sculpture is intended to communicate the delicate balance between life and death.
