Momento Mori

This series of sculptures exploring figuration and artifacts related to the lives of various men, women and moments in time take inspiration from the tradition of memento mori (Latin: "remember (that) you will die"). The phrase was said to have been whispered into the ear of victorious Roman military leaders returning from battle as a reminder of their mortality. Reflection on mortality and remembrance. Each of these sculptures in this project is a meditation on a life.
