Memento Mori Zippo Lighter
In Meditations, Marcus Aurelius wrote “You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think.” That was a personal reminder to continue living a life of virtue NOW, and not wait. The French painter Philippe de Champaigne expressed a similar sentiment in his painting "Still Life with a Skull," which showed the three essentials of existence: the tulip (life), the skull (death), and the hourglass (time). The original painting is part of a genre referred to as Vanitas, a form of 17th century artwork featuring symbols of mortality which encourage reflection on the meaning and fleetingness of life.
Daily Stoic is excited to announce an easy way to keep this important thought in mind. A beautiful memento mori lighter, a literal and inescapable reminder that “you could leave life right now.”
These antique brass lighters are made at Zippo's factory in Bradford, PA.
