The expression "Memento mori" comes from the Latin locution "remember that you will die", a formula from medieval Christianity.
Expressing the vanity of earthly life, it refers to the "art of dying", or Ars moriendi.It embodies an ethic of detachment and ascesis.
It is close to another Latin locution: "Sic transit gloria mundi" ("Thus passes the glory of the world").

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

Each piece is unique and handmade in our workshops in a 19th century style.
