Memento Mori. by Yuval Co

We created a new story combining the famous and powerful composition of the Last Supper with various elements from the Vanitas art genre, which described the passing of Time and the Nothingness of the human existence. Different icons such as fire struggling to survive at the tip of the candle, overripe fruits and insects resting over withering flowers symbolise that time has no mercy for the human kind and that life is transitory.
We wonder whether these symbols remain of deep significance nowadays or are perhaps merely aesthetic yet empty of meaning in their modern daily use.
In the end of the day, for as much as we know, each supper can be our last.
