Stemming from the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, it has been a ubiquitous part of human culture for centuries. From the philosophical to the artistic, the fascination, fear and appreciation of death has consistently captivated and cultivated our imagination. Many practitioners of this theory kept with them, artifacts or keepsakes that served as a reminder that the only thing certain in life, was death. Many of these items were often objects (watches, necklaces) in the shape of skulls.
The Memento Mori legacy has now been artfully infused into an oversized performance pad that provides a wide-area professional working surface. It also skillfully frames the magic moments, making for a more profound experience for your spectators.
The surface measures 24 inches by 17 inches, and is crafted with a premium fabric perfect for card, coin or table work. Each plush top is equipped with a surface-gripping base to prevent slippage on tabletops – and you can roll and carry your pad for easy transportation.
Memento Mori — “Remember your mortality.” A constant reminder of our fleeting time on Earth, now imbued on the finest of full-space close-up pads.
