A Cast Iron Memento Mori Architectural Element
A double sided cast iron architectural element featuring the symbolic skull and crossed bones of the reflection of our reality that is “Memento Mori”. This symbolism is seen on many gravestones in Edinburgh and one inscribed 1746 in St Cuthbert's churchyard bears a very close resemblance to this casting.
The casting is taken from the original pattern Drew bought from the foundry that first produced it on the Scottish Borders and have commissioned a limited run of these produced from the same foundry.
These will be released in small batches over the next few years.
Scottish, 18th century but newly cast.
