Van Dyke Brown Print

van dyke

A Van Dyke Brown print of a vanita I put together. Pictured is a glass sphere, a spool of thread, an open book, a glass bottle, an ink pen, an apple, ivy leaves, and most noticeably, a human skull. Each item in the image has a symbol meaning behind it relating back to the symbolism in vanita paintings of the 15th Century.
