Memento mori is Latin for “remember that you must die,” and in the art world a memento mori is usually a skull that is meant to serve as a friendly reminder of that same lesson. The latest entry in this ironically long-lived art form is the Heavy Eyes Memento Mori life-sized leather skull.
Each Heavy Eyes Memento Mori leather skull is meticulously crafted from multiple leather pieces in order to create a lifelike (deathlike?) human skull model, the same size as the real thing. They’re assembled by hand and available in either black or natural tanned vegetable leather — no offense.
Both varieties of the Heavy Eyes Memento Mori life-size leather skull are available at the Heavy Eyes online store right here. They cost $180 each, but remember: Life is short, and you can’t take your savings account with you, so why not drop almost $200 on a leather skull every now and again?
