My next tattoo this phrase MEMENTO MORI - Latin 'remember that you will die', is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.

This ring dates from 1728; the absolute height of the memento mori style. It not only features the affectation of the ‘coffin’ shaped crystal, but it encapsulates the skeleton inlaid in black enamel around the band. Further to this, the element of the full skeleton inside the coffin crystal completes the sentiment. There is nowhere on the jewel that death is not represented.

De manhã escureço De dia tardo De tarde anoiteço De noite ardo.  A oeste a morte Contra quem vivo  Do sul cativo  O este é meu norte.   Outros que contem  Passo por passo: Eu morro ontem   Nasço amanhã  Ando onde há espaço:  – Meu tempo é quando."    Vinicius de Moraes   Ram ⚰
