"Memento mori - remember death! These are important words. If we kept in mind that we will soon inevitably die, our lives would be completely different. If a person knows that he will die in a half hour, he certainly will not bother doing trivial, stupid, or, especially, bad things during this half hour. Perhaps you have half a century before you die-what makes this any different from a half hour?" ~Leo Tolstoy
A "memento mori" is both a trinket and a philosophy - a call to remember those who are most beloved, as well as to
keep in mind how valuable and impermanent we are.
This collection is full of bones.
It is both reminder to live well as well as to remember the lives well lived.
