Yorick Skull with Latin Inscription
This is not your everyday run of the mill skull piece. Note the intense realism, accuracy, and attention to detail based upon our study of actual human skulls. We are classically trained artists and what sets this apart are the countless hours and many years of careful studying of human anatomy in the manner of the old masters that went into our skull pieces. A timeless classic design. Inscribed ‘Aeternitatem Respice’ across the back of the skull, meaning ‘look upon eternity’. This would look amazing displayed on a table, shelves or desk atop a stack of books as a Memento Mori as did the scholars and philosophers of old.
Throughout history skull symbolism can be seen everywhere from Shakespeare to Day of the Dead to Pirate lore to Memento Mori. The symbolism of the skull carries dichotomous meanings including life, death, honoring the dead, remembering to live mindfully, protection, transformation and regeneration as well as a symbol of life after death, rebirth, and immortality.
