Memento Mori Art
Still Life With a Skull. Philippe de Champaigne Vanitas, 1671. Three essentials of existence: life, death and time.
This is a photographic image, showing what happens when Apples decay. The use of dark background, dark lighting and dark surface that contrasts with the green decaying apple emphasises a sort of death theme in this image. As decay symbolises death.
I would love to do this with the real moths and a skull under glass.
