A Japanese funeral home wanted to change the strict dress code observed in funeral services, where wearing colors other than black and white is regarded inappropriate.

It partnered with an ad agency to create an ad that may do that convention.

The agency, responded with this: a figure of a skeleton, made with pressed flowers that overtly celebrates the cycle of life by introducing color.

The polychromatic beauty of tulip fields in Spoorbuurt, in north Holland, as seen from the window of a small plane.

An unflattering union of Dr. Mengele and Georgia O’Keeffe, photographer Robert Buelteman subjects his floral subjects to torture.

He slices his flowers very thinly, till they’ve lost all color; are translucent.

Next, he prepares them for a ghastly electrocution by laying them on a metal sheet, sandwiched between Plexiglas. His final act of cruelty is to flip on a switch, upon which, 80,000 volts of electricity course through their soft carcasses, sizzling them in an electron beam.

Their destruction couldn’t be more complete. But, that is how Buelteman creates.
