Imile Wepener, Death in the coat of many colours, Hand puppet, Paper mache, acrylic paint and fabric, 57 x35cm, 2021

Coat of many colours:
Death was at the end of his long journey. As he was staring at the sunrise, he thought of all the adventures that he had had.
He thought of all the beautiful things, and all the sad things that he experienced. He had seen the whole world, and had met all kinds of different beings from all walks of life.
Each new friend gave the skeleton a small memory to keep, a piece of themselves, so that he may never forget them.
He took all the memories and sewed them all together to create a second skin; a coat of many colours, that he could always keep with him and that he may never forget the beauty and the sadness that make up the world.
