Lot 0018
Memento mori is Latin for “remember that you have to die”. This is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality. To this end the Vic- torians took to creating artworks from the hair of thier deceased loved ones. This example is an extremely large and intricately woven beautiful wreath of human hair housed in a deep shadow box that is crowned with an ornately carved finial. The wreath features multicoloured hair that forms a circular boquet of flowers each tipped with silver finished beads. 27 in. x 30 in. to the top of the finial x 4.5 in. deep Condition: very good solid condition. Two small cracks in the glass that do not de- tract from display.
