Vanitas are typically still life paintings, and are full of symbols of the fleeting nature of life, the decay of the physical, and certainty of death.
There is no such thing as a heavy hand when dealing with symbolism in a vanitas - they include skulls, timepieces, flowers - things I have chosen to use here.
This was an outtake from Submission Sunday, but I didn’t get posted, so I guess it’s not really an outtake any more. I’m trying to keep my nudes varied - I like to try new things. Not everyone is going to like that, and that’s okay with me.
I’m still going to share them, because I like them, and I hope some of you will too. =) At the very least I’ve exposed someone to a new vocabulary word.
