what's up with that skull?

Memento mori!  That was Holbein's motto!

No, see, I get that.  But why's it there, and looking like that, all distorted and photoshopped looking?

Art historians themselves don't know why he added it to that painting.  I myself wonder how the people who paid for it thought when they saw it; my art professor thought they might have thought the technique rather neat.  Also, the subject of the painting is rather worldly, two ambassadors showing off their worldly learning, maybe Holbein thought to teach a moral lesson.


And awesome rosary Arun!

That rosary looks evil.  Who's idea was that?

"Hold firmly that our faith is identical with that of the ancients. Deny this, and you dissolve the unity of the Church."
--St. Thomas Aquinas

"Neither the true faith nor eternal salvation is to be found outside the Holy Catholic Church."
--Pope Pius IX

“That the Conciliar Church is a schismatic Church, because it breaks with the Catholic Church that has always been. It has its new dogmas, its new priesthood, its new institutions, its new worship, all already condemned by the Church in many a document, official and definitive."
--Archbishop Lefebvre

Heliocentricism is idiocy.

the memento mori devotion is very old.  St. Francis of assisi used to look at a skull and meditate on his own death. 

there are chapels where the whole room is line with bones:




"I am not much of a Crusader, that is for sure, but at least I am not a Mohamedist!"

as has been said, memento mori is a long stadning Catholic tradition. my wife made this for me due to my devotion to memento mori. it's made from relatively inexpensive beads, but holds a great deal of sentimental value to me cos she made it to be especially suited to me.

if you saw me in the back of your church with it in my hands it would look fitting hahaha.

There's a "Bone Church" in Rome. I couldn't bring myself to go in.  :o

I was going to get one of those memento mori rosaries when I first reverted only because in my work I saw so much death and just how many people are unprepared is astonishing. So I wanted to include a purgatory prayer with it :)

The only thing is that rosary was too $!

I have a memento mori rosary that was made by Rosarium.  It's fantastic.
IF I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

i have seen some photos of his, they look great. pricey though but they would be worth the pice.  mine cost under ten bucks for the materials.

He's also quite generous.

When I was getting into making rosaries, I asked him about the best places to get certain parts. He asked my address and said he'd send me some things to get me started. What showed up was a giant box FULL of rosary-making everything, including various tools.

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.
