The essence is gone
assemblage of found objects
china funerary dove, old pipe case, old weight-measuring scale
21 X 21 X 6 cm
by Dale Copeland, 2015
Some call it the soul. (And there have even been experiments to try and measure the weight which is lost on death, as the soul leaves.
I call it only personality, reality, the self.
Not entirely lost while remembered by friends, but certainly not in that box.
