Top Old European Memento Mori Bone Scull Skeleton Hand Carved Vanitas Miniature For Sale

Old North European Memento Mori

Miniature skeleton of bone, hand carved with extreme detail (see close ups)

In absolute perfect condition, made out of 1 piece.

Most memento mori works are products of Christian art, but also for ages arouses of the dark underground.

Anyway, it was mostly based on the prospect of death that serves to emphasize the emptiness and fleetingness of earthly pleasures, luxuries, and achievements, and thus also as an invitation to focus one's thoughts on the prospect of the afterlife.

"Remember Man that you are dust and unto dust you shall return."

And ofcourse Vanitas, what corresponds to the meaninglessness of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. Typical Flemish (Belgian) (North Europe).

Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.

Wonderful piece on wood pedestal (cleaned with protective layer)

NO DAMAGE AT ALL

Height: 140 mm = ca 5.5 inch (with foot)
