Description

Offered here is a wonderful 1800's Italian memento mori vanitas. Vanitas is a symbolic work of art. This comes from a private collection in Italy. I have the pleasure of acquiring several of these treasures.

The paper feels fantastic and is in wonderful condition. It is substantial yet also allows light through. There are several symbols with the skull that depict alchemical reality.

I love one of the lines...

In congerie mortu orum evigilabit memorare novissima tua vanitas...

Mortu, drum awake in the chaos...remember...the end of your vanity.

The reality of death has confronted me many times in my life. Each time, this force confronted my illusions and facades and invited me to deeper embodiment.

Allow your soul & the elemental forces to drum you awake in the chaos...Remember...

Keywords: Persephone, Queen of the In-between, Queen of the Underworld, Hecate, Seer, Shaman, Edge walker, Visionary, Prophetess...

6 inches long by 4 inches wide.

Please note this listing is for the memento mori print, as shown in the 1st and 5th pics. The other items you see are for inspiration and display purposes only.

If reserves/lay-a-ways are not followed through on, there will be a minimal charge of $10.00 to cover Etsy and Paypal fees and also the the work it takes me to set up this courtesy and then to delete and re-list. Additional charge may be incurred if the reserve/lay-a-way has been on hold for some time. This will be determined for each unique circumstance and deducted from the down payment. Thank you.

Additional policies

I would like to speak to convos and feedback. During my time with Etsy, I have enjoyed these two mediums immensely. Convos are a wonderful way to ask questions and seek to get your creative ideas and needs met. Feedback is a great way to share your appreciation and experience of the purchasing exchange. It is nutriment for the artist, and helps future buyers get to know the artist. Feedback also gives both the purchaser and supplier a way to achieve closure on their interaction. I ask that if my buyers are not happy with any element of our interaction that they contact me with this information. I appreciate the opportunity to resolve any issues before a buyer would leave negative feedback on my Etsy account. Let's be respectful with one another in this creative process!
