21st Century Memento Mori
Etched glass, mobile phone
Mourning jewelry and other hand-held objects were a remarkable way many people in the 16th - 19th c. chose to remember both their own mortaility and commemorate a deceased loved one. What better way to update the tradition than by bringing it to the most frequently held object of 21st century life.
