SUREMATU ~ Vanitas with Animal Skull, Ametyst, Fluorite, Apophyllite, Dried Moss in Victorian Frame


Vanitas ~

A symbolic work of art showing the transience of life and the certainty of death.

The cycle of life, death, and rebirth is celebrated in this piece. The symbolism of an animal skull surrounded by moss evokes a forest floor claiming back death and returning it to new life.

This Vanitas features an animal skull (found in nature, I’ve done research and can’t seem to figure out what animal it is, so if you know please message me!)

The skull is encrusted with crystals- Fluorite, Apophyllite, and Amethyst. The base is a Victorian frame with a delightful secret- a Victorian lady peeking out through one of the skull’s eyes. (See pictures!)

This piece is 8” diameter and has hardware for hanging in the back.


I can customize the length of any chain in advance if you send me a measurement.

I don’t do refunds, but if a piece breaks, please send it back to me and I will be happy to fix it!
