Some artists chose to remove figural and narrative elements entirely when employing momento mori. Seemingly innocuous still-lifes of flowers, bubbles, and butterflies are darkened with the addition of the skull as a sinister kind of vase and an hour glass endlessly counting out the passage of mortal time. For all their beauty, even the lighter elements have a fleeting quality about them- flowers quickly turn, bubbles burst, and insects feed on the decay.
