c.19th Century Momento Mori Oils

A wonderfully macabre pair of C19th Memento Mori oils

This small but perfectly formed pair of Memento Mori oils date to the C19th and are a reminder to us that we are here for a good time, not a long time. Memento Mori pieces were made for turning our attention towards the immortality of the soul and the afterlife, and away from earthly pursuits. These oils are wonderfully rendered in a naive style by an unknown hand on charming, rough-cut wooden boards.
