Sterling silver “Memento Mori” skeleton pendant with articulated body parts. “Memento Mori” is a Latin term for “remember you must die”, which is often referred to as an artistic metaphor reminding us of the inevitability of death, and that it is not something to be feared.
You have to appreciate the craftmanship, the attention to detail, and all the moving parts. The skeleton moves at every major joint, so it is portable entertainment! It would even be the perfect pendant for someone anxious to fiddle with.
Fantastic details replicate the joints and surfaces of an actual skeleton, such as a textured spine, hollowed-out ribcage, and moving arms and legs. These details are highlighted by the oxidised finish (black) applied before polishing, which adds a particularly chilling effect in the skull.
The perfect gift for Gothic or Romantic (in the literary sense) style, or someone studying medicine or interested in human biology.
Weight: 29.5 grams.
