Kings Chapel burial ground, Boston - 1697/8
Got a thing for skull T-shirts or maybe just skulls? Well this simple, if grim, image is for you. The sumbolic meaning of the Death's Head or winged skull means quite simply - Death victorious.
If death customs and images can be used to guage the people they represent we get the message that the Puritans were unusually cruel and primitive in some ways and clung to some very medieval habits and customs.
Click the T-shirt image to get a good look at the detail of this winged skull and remember that none of the detail is lost when this design is silk screened onto 100% cotton T-shirts for you.
