Vanitas Disco Skull

Vanitas Disco Skull

A reminder to dance all the way to the grave in a limited edition by Ludvig Löfgren for Kosta Boda. A Vanitas is a "symbolic still life... meant as a reminder of the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death, encouraging a sombre world view (wikipedia: vanitas)." I must have a morbid streak because I've always been drawn to them without knowing what they were called.
