The reality of death stares back at us from this artfully crafted skull that hinges open to reveal the very seconds of our lives ticking away! A classic "memento mori," an artwork designed to remind us of the shortness and fragility of life, mimics a tradition that dates to at least the 17th century. Cast in quality designer resin to capture details such as a lifelessly toothy smile and dark, sunken eyes, this faux bronze-finished piece houses a quartz movement clock with Roman numerals and sweep second hand. Exclusive to Toscano, this macabre collectible skull clock just might shock us from thoughts of death to appreciating life! Accepts your single AA battery, not included.
