Each piece is unique, horn, bone, wood... So many materials to reveal the original character of each piece.
A unique nod to impermanence, the ephemeral and the Vanities. The expression "Memento mori" comes from the Latin phrase "remember that you are going to die", a formula from medieval Christianity. Expressing the vanity of earthly life, it refers to "the art of dying", or Ars moriendi.
It induces an ethic of detachment and asceticism.
It is close to another Latin phrase: “Sic transit gloria mundi” (“Thus passes the glory of the world”).

Its origin dates back to Greco-Roman antiquity, when a slave stood alongside a victorious general during his triumph in order to remind him of his mortal condition.
The phrase "Hominem te esse" ("You too are only a man") was also used.

This vision of the human condition has given rise to many artistic representations, such as those you can discover here.
