360º full colour printed pencil inspired by "Le Miroir de la Mort", Vanity or Memento Mori, enamelled brass, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, 1618. Drawing attention to a skull crowned with flowers and a skeleton lying in its tomb, this composition symbolizes the vanity of human existence. The hourglass reminds mankind of the passing of time while an object that seems to be a compass may point the way to the spiritual light embodied by the two torches.
