VanityVanity is similar to pride, but it involves an excessive admiration of oneself because of one's real or imaginary skills, talents, accomplishments, or appearance. Pride in physical appearance can border on narcissism. In Western art, the sin of vanity is symbolized by a mirror, or by animals such as the cock or peacock. As one of the seven deadly sins, the vain person's excessive belief in his or her abilities interfers with his or her recognition of the grace of God. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanity [Jun 2005]

Vanitas (Memento Mori) (1502-03) - Master M Z
Memento mori is a Latin phrase that may be freely translated as "Remember that you are mortal," "Remember you will die," or "Remember your death". It names a genre of artistic creations that vary widely from one another, but which all share the same purpose, which is to remind people of their own mortality.
The artistic genre of still life [associated with memento mori] was formerly called vanitas, Latin for "vanity", because it was thought appropriate for each such painting to include some kind of symbol of mortality in each picture; these could be obvious ones like skulls, or subtler ones, like a flower losing its petals. See the themes associated with the image of the skull. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memento_mori [Oct 2006]
