Memento Mori

Memento Mori by Fiona Parkinson features the stunning Deaths Head Hawkmoth, famed by Silence of the Lambs, perfectly preserved and designed as coffins along with butterfly skeletons.

Memento Mori is one of Fiona’s most sought after, but tricky to produce (and therefore limited) pieces! Each edition is made by Fiona and is unique due to the beautiful natural variation in the butterflies being used.

All specimens are exquisitely preserved, treated and crafted by Fiona to deliver a stunning artwork guaranteed to add beauty and intrigue to any collection.
