Housing a display of both found and hand crafted artifacts, traditionally put in place to accompany the dead on their voyage to the next life. The installation will be floor to ceiling opulence, things to wear, eat, pet and have in your home. All crafted in Rosy’s beautiful painterly style and signature colour palette.
