AN 18TH CENTURY MOMENTO MORI RING The hoop with chased skull, thistle, flowerhead and leaf design and black enamel detailing, the interior inscribed Love Is The Bond Of Peace

Skeletal Momento Mori

I don't know if this picture is a Momento Mori... But it most certainly does not belong on the oddities board. That poor woman. I can't say what disfigured her face (a fire, perhaps?) but look at her hands, please... She has rheumatoid arthritis... This makes her a true warrior spirit, and a woman of incredible beauty. So sorry for what she suffered.
