Dead Cardinal & Suicide King is an allegorical still life depicting a dead male cardinal bird lying on its back, placed on a piece of wood. Pinned to the wallpapered wall behind him is the King of Hearts. The King of Hearts is colloquially known as the 'suicide king' amongst card players since it appears that the king has his sword piercing his own head. This painting is 8-ply museum matted and framed under acrylic in a silver leaf frame.
