HAIR RELIQUARIES

Hair is a highly potent medium; flagging fashion trends, health status and characteristics inherited from our forefathers. Many believe that hair retains the aura and energy of the person connected with it, and as such, memento mori become relics or talismans. Hair has a biological life cycle while we live and, since it doesn't rot, an eternal existence once we die. As a reliquary, it contains the remains, the absence and the memory of a person.
