Seeking an icon: memento mori style

Hey, all you lovely LJ peeps and icon makers,

I am searching for a specific type of icon. I want something in the artistic memento mori style. There's more information and some photo examples at the link, but the phrase means something to remind one of death. It's often done in art as a still life including food or flowers or jewels to represent the passing pleasures of life, plus a skull and an hourglass, symbolizing death and how quickly time passes.

Anyone know where I might find such an icon? It's proved difficult to search, and I'm not good at making my own.
