The deaths of Mario

It's a hard life being a short, pudgy, Italian-American plumber from the Mushroom Kingdom.

Every time he is thwomped or crushed or blown up, which let's face it is a huge amount, we are taught a very important life lesson: whatever it is that led to that moment, don't do it again.

This reminder of the many ways in which Mario died was put together by the extremely talented Yves Bourgelas who has more work here. Probably best viewed in stunned silence.
