"Carpe diem," says this exquisite work. Whether in your garden or your house, let this magnificent piece speak to you of seizing the day. 100% marble. Salvaged funerary art from a mausoleum which was being dismantled.
This shrouded urn is steeped in symbolism. The veil represents the partition between life and death -- the thin gauzy separation between what is and what shall be. The empty urn, stands as a momento mori: the reminder that life must be cherished and seized upon, as someday it shall end. Together, the ancient symbolism of the shrouded urn speaks of cyclical values: the journey into dust which, itself, leads to the glorious rebirth of the soul after death.
