MEMENTO MORI

MEMENTO MORI

Memento Mori, latin for Remember Death, refers to talismans created as reminders of the fleeting nature of life on Earth. From the Medieval to the Victorian eras, these charms became popular symbols for remembering the afterlife and memorializing the deceased. In the contemporary moment, Memento Mori artifacts have become a standby for Goth girls and ghouls à la mode.
