Nymphenburg Memento Mori Skull

It may seem a bit bizarre wanting this stunning gem, as badly as I do. But it really is a piece of art - though a very small one measuring only 4 cm. It is made of porcelain by Nymphenburg in Germany and was designed by Franz Ignaz Günther around 1756 as a part of a large porcelain crucifix. 
This skulls is still handmade in Nymphenburg's own Bavarian workshops

"Memento Mori"
