Still Life With a Skull. Philippe de Champaigne Vanitas, 1671. Three essentials of existence: life, death and time.
This memento mori photo contains not a single deceased person, yet it feels more powerful than many of the post mortem images The stark simplicity is breathtaking. And that little boy’s determined face, wearing his father’s uniform cap
My next tattoo this phrase MEMENTO MORI - Latin 'remember that you will die', is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.
Scorpios see below the surface to the essence of WHATEVER you present to them. When you're in trouble, their penetrating insight cuts to the bone. Trust them to help you find your way clear. This beautiful image was created by a very gifted artist. (I wonder if the artist has planets in Scorpio or Libra...it's so very beautiful.)
Italian, late 19th century, A Vanitas I like this because its very straight forward, and to the point. You know exactly whats its trying to portray right away. MT
