Nobody had a description for this, but it's certainly an interesting image! Wikipedia "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.""
