Description

Vive Memor Mors isn't just a piece of silver; it's a reflection on the profound aspects of human existence. The use of 999 fine silver,  through the closed cast method, highlights the meticulous attention to detail in its creation. This isn't just about pouring silver; it's about infusing it with layers of symbolism and meaning.

The central motif of the skull is a powerful reminder of mortality. It's a universal symbol that transcends cultures and time periods, serving as a stark reminder of the fleeting nature of life. But it's not just about dwelling on death; it's a call to live fully in the present moment, to embrace each day with enthusiasm and purpose.

Accompanying the skull is the crow, a creature often associated with wisdom and transcendence in various cultures. Its presence suggests that there's more to life than meets the eye—that there are deeper truths waiting to be uncovered beyond the veil of mortality. The crow's ability to navigate between worlds also symbolizes our capacity to adapt and grow through life's inevitable changes.

Contrasting with these symbols of mortality and wisdom are the delicate roses, representing the beauty and fragility of life. Despite their fleeting nature, roses bloom vibrantly, reminding us to appreciate the beauty and joy that can be found in every moment. They also symbolize love and remembrance, serving as a reminder to cherish our relationships and the memories we create.

The Latin phrase "Vive Memor Mors" translating to "Live, Remember, Die" encapsulates the essence of the human experience. It's a mantra that urges us to live fully, to remember our past, and to accept the inevitability of death with dignity and grace. It's a reminder that life is a journey, filled with moments of joy, sorrow, and everything in between.

In essence, Vive Memor Mors invites us to reflect on the complexities of existence—to contemplate the transient nature of life, the pursuit of wisdom, the beauty of impermanence, and the inevitability of mortality. It's a piece of art that serves as a tangible reminder to embrace each moment, honor the past, and approach the future with courage and resilience.
