Memento Mori 5 by menton3 Memento Mori 5 by menton3
This is a series of card stock oil paintings I have started called "Memento Mori ".

wiki : Memento mori ; is a Latin phrase translated as "Remember you must die". It names a genre of artistic creations that vary widely from one another, but which all share the same purpose: to remind people of their own mortality and the punishment they will receive if they transgress the rules of their religion.
The phrase has a tradition in art that dates back to antiquity.


11x17 watercolor.
