RIDING HOME VICTORIAN MEMENTO MORI POSTER

It's Mid October and there you are, whistling past an old forgotten cemetery around midnight, the moonlight is peeking through the old oak trees.

What is that in the distance you hear? Look over yonder, to the sounds of a horse pulling a wagon. It's coming closer and closer, down the old cobblestone path until you see the lone driver looming into view, it's the King of Death in all his glory!!!

In his left hand he is carrying an hour glass as a reminder to live and in the other, waving a scythe that any one can soon be cut down.

He is driving a gold-crested Victorian hearse pulled by a grand white horse. Who is on board on this moonlight night? Someone is riding home to the bosom of the earth.

Most of our posters are vertical but this one is horizontal and would make a lovely companion set along with our St. James Infirmary poster.

'Dust thou art,
and unto dust
thou shalt return.

This poster is 22 inches wide by 17 inches high, generous black ink lushly printed on parchment stock.

PLEASE NOTE: This poster image was hand drawn by Madame Talbot using nothing more than pen and ink on illustration board.

After the poster was completed, it was taken to a real printer and printed on an offset printing press.

Absolutely no computers were used in the making of this poster, all of it was drawn entirely by hand.

The copyright notice is on the website image only and not on the printed poster.
