11:54 am - 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.

I haven't done any like that but if you have a picture you like, I'd be happy to have a go...

I'll poke around tonight and if I find a really good one, I'll drop you think. Thank you so much for offering! :)

I edited this down from one of the Wikipedia Commons Memento Mori images, if you're interested. If you're not, it only took me a couple minutes, so no worries. :)

Edit: bad html, sorry. Here it is for real!

Don't think I can help with the icon, but you've given me an idea for a theme for wine charms.

Go fig.

Oh really? Tell me all about it, if/when you wish. That sounds very cool.
