So much mysticism and symbolism surrounds the form of the human skull, they embody so many of our ideas about mortality and death. It was a symbol of melancholy for Shakespeare, the skeleton is a way to remember and pray for lost family and friends through festivals in many cultures such as the Day of the Dead and All Souls Day, and it has become a iconic element for designers such as Alexander McQueen. We can embrace these ideologies and accept our mortality through appropriating this mystic form, and wearing it like an ornament.
We can decide not to die.
