Memento Mori Monday

In preparing for a painting I am working on, St. Anthony in the Desert, I was researching Death, particularly in the guise of monarch and pope.

I came upon the following resources , mostly from the Capucin Crypts and the Imperial Crypt of Vienna.

Lovely way to start the week, enjoy!

You must admit, the willingness to explore death, to look it in the eye, and not flinch, is admirable.

Monarch, man, or Pope.

Just amazing.

Enjoy today.
