memento mori

The collectionmemento mori is inspired bycuriosity cabinets which were very fashionable at 18th century, the fashion of curious collections invaded Europe in full scientific effervescence. We discovered the treasures ofcolonies, the fruit of the first archaeological excavations and the treasures of ancient Egypt.

Wealthy notables built up collections of bizarre and possibly exotic objects, bringing together fragments offossils, ofskulls , crystals andminerals, mummies, statues,relics or specimens of stuffed animals, sometimes works of unscrupulous forgers inspired bybestiaries mythological such as unicorn horns or mermaid skeletons.

They could thus be exposed to the sight of their distinguished guests ecstatic in front of these curiosities presented in the windows of their private rooms.
