A meaningful skull and crossbones surrounded by the ouroboros wax seal necklace pendant, memento mori wax seal jewelry.
- symbolism -
In heraldry, the skull is symbolic of mortality and a reminder that death comes to all living things ... the Latin sentiment MEMENTO MORI means remember your death and is meant to inspire you to intentionally think about your own death every day, as a means of appreciating the present and focus on the future.
The ouroboros, a snake devouring its tail, represents eternity, wholeness, and the circle of life.
