This shadow box assemblage is called Renacer, which means rebirth in Spanish. The composition has three parts. The bottom part shows skulls coming out from a dead tree. It represents the need for change from a toxic situation. The middle part shows three swords into a heart. It represents the pain caused by the situation. Finally, the top part shows how the skulls from the bottom have flourished and become a new being, surrounded by flowers and a crown, symbols of spiritual achievement.
If you know the Tarot, you might find several symbols from three cards: The dead, the three of swords and the judgment.
