So I did this in art today. I am very proud of it because for such a long time I’ve gone through depression and part of that was because I didn’t think I was good at art but today, as my confidence has built up, I am pleased to admit that this is my art and I think it looks good!
Please don’t steal it :)
Examples of intricately carved human skulls. They are apparently quite old and from Asia, and with a Buddhist connection, although we can’t be sure. All we can say is that they are incredible in their detail and beauty. The patina of age and the imagery on each one is amazing.
Pocket watch concealed in a memento mori, 1700-1936. The engraved Latin phrase Tempus fugit on this small model means time flies. The object was probably a memento mori, meaning a reminder of death. The tiny silver model of a human skull opens to reveal a pocket watch.
