- symbolism -
In heraldry, the skull is symbolic of mortality and a reminder that death comes to all living things ... the full skull intaglio seal is surrounded by the Latin sentiment ES FVI SUM ERIS which translates AS YOU ARE NOW SO ONCE WAS I, AS I AM NOW SO MUST YOU BE ... a reminder to 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, very much like the sentiment MEMENTO MORI.
