Memento Mori

Washi tape designed for The Washi Station‘s 2021 Halloween series. Gold foil on cream.

Memento mori (Latin for ‘remember that you [have to] die’) is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.

Bubbles, skulls, tombstones, broken stems, wilting flowers, hourglass, pocket watches, fruits, flickering flames, flies, maggots, butterflies, danse macabre, autumn leaves, and my favourite, the ‘Be Cheerful Live Well’ skeleton.
