Wandering around the city you sometimes see subtle reminders of mortality.
The lions of the Art Institute stand on these.
Excellent ! I have been doing a series of memento mori images and these two images are really impressive.
thanks very much! I too am fascinated by momento mori. Some, indeed, have accused me of being morbid at times but I find them an excellent impulse to love life and live it fully.
Do you have your series posted? I’d love to see it!
They show up in various posts or as part of a post sequence. Check my Existential Friday posts and my What-if Wednesday posts. They are more constructed visions, rather than found in the environment. Syncopated Eye also has quirky found images of memento mori.
