Discovered in a brand new, high quality source for art, Ursula and I loved this pic by Nick Cave, who I didn't even know took photographs. Three sizes, framed and unframed.

"Suggestive of both African ceremonial costumes as well as Parisian high fashion, Nick Cave's Soundsuits named because of the sounds they make when worn are created from scavenged materials such as beads, old bottle caps, rusty iron sticks and hair. They combine Cave's interests in fashion, culture and the intersection of politics. By concealing their wearers' race, gender, and class, Cave's works allow individuals to escape or transcend prescribed identities."
