Roman memento mori mosaic
Roman memento mori mosaic. Mosaics consist of small pieces of coloured glass or stone, used to form an image or pattern on a floor or wall. This mosaic, a memento mori ('remember you will die'), shows a skeleton carrying two wine vessels. The image reminds diners to be aware of their mortality, even while enjoying wine and their meal. This 2nd century BC mosaic, from the Casa del Fauno, Pompeii, is displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy.
