Eina Ahluwalia - Memento Mori Brooch
Remembering that we will die and return to dust, puts our egos in place and the pursuit of earthly pleasures in perspective. This remembrance of the impermanence of life and the inevitability of death is a catalyst for us to give ourselves to a purpose greater than ourselves; to make something of our time alive, and leave something good behind. This skull has a wreathe around the head and an Unalome on its forehead, both symbolic of a life lived fully, and time on earth used well in being of value to others. The unalome represents the path to enlightenment. The spiral shows the beginning of the path, without direction, the knots are our errors and struggles, each a life lesson, and the straight line learbing up to the dots on top is our finding harmony, our purpose, and finally enlightenment. Similarly, the lotus on the crown symbolizes rising above the darkness we live in, and blooming into our purest self. Material : Brass with gold plating.
