IMAGES OF THE DAY: Shelves Of Death

If the thought of a giant skull constantly staring at you from your wall sounds unappealing, you may not have seen these shelf creations built by British artist James Hopkins. They're made out of everyday objects, and combine attractive interior decoration with a regular reminder of mortality.

The artworks are from a series called 'Vanitas'. Check out a few of his skull shelf works below:
