Product Description

The Vanitas art form, derived from the Latin word 'vanity,' serves as a symbolic representation of life's impermanence, the fleeting nature of pleasure, and the inevitability of death. Originating in the 16th century and extending into the 17th century, Vanitas paintings typically featured still life compositions portraying ephemeral elements.

The butterfly emerging from the cocoon signifies the brevity of our life journey, commencing from birth.

A clock positioned at the base represents the passage of time, while books symbolize knowledge and learning. The violin on one page alludes to musical education, and the inkwell signifies literature and art, both associated with worldly pleasures.

The hourglass within the composition embodies the transient and finite nature of time. Additionally, the reflecting sphere represents worldly power and the material world. This array of symbols culminates in a specific arrangement, accompanied by the phrase "Memento Mori," serving as a reminder of our mortality.
