Frank Maiolo's - Memento Mori Bolo
This hand carved Alaskan moose bone skull is set in sterling silver and hangs on a black natural leather cord with sterling silver tips. The stainless steel tension bolo back will not mar or fray the leather and will last a lifetime.
I don't make a lot of bolo's but this one turned out really cool!
The piece measures approximately 2 3/4" x 1 1/2" and the cord length is approximately 37".
“Memento Mori,” or translated in English, “Remember you must die.” The point of this reminder isn’t to be morbid or promote fear, but to inspire, motivate and clarify. The idea has been central to art, philosophy, literature, architecture, and more throughout history. As Socrates says in Plato’s Phaedo, “The one aim of those who practice philosophy in the proper manner is to practice for dying and death.”
