This collection of memento mori and vanitas use the symbolism of butterflies, meat, shells, skulls and flowers to signify impermanence - death, decay, the body, fertility and the afterlife.

About

Flowers represent life, the skeleton and skulls signify death, the gold leaf signifies wealth and what will be left behind. The butterfly signifies hope and the fragility of life, shells represent fertility, insects are decay and meat is the body and wealth. 

I am interested in death as a subject matter because it is a reminder of the fragility of life.
