Since the beginning of time, the skull is been used as a symbol of mortality, victory, the ultimate Memento Mori. The skull represented the contemplation of eternity. In Elizabethan England, it was an emblem of bawds, rakes and sexual adventure. Its a symbol men, in particular, have always loved to paint, carve, cast, and wear.
