Skulls have been a reminder for the inevitability of death in every culture in human history. It is beautifully captured in the Latin phrase "memento mori" meaning "remember that you must die". The skull is also a symbol for the grim reaper, who's symbolism mirrors that of Saturn & Chronos who are ancient gods of time and death. For those who believe in the afterlife, the skull is also a symbol for the immortality of the spirit, the part of the self that lives beyond the death of the body, hopping from skull to skull. For those who don't believe in an afterlife, the skull is a reminder of the importance of the current moment, for one day there will be no more moments to experience. So free yourself from the shackles of cultural conditioning, seize the day and do what thou wilt!
