SACRED GEOMETRY
 
 

This piece was composed from a root 5 rectangle and drawn from life. A memento mori (Latin ‘remember that you will die’) is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death. “The expression ‘memento mori’ developed with the growth of Christianity, which emphasized Heaven, Hell, and salvation of the soul in the afterlife.”
