SIMPLY SOFIA - SKULLS. SKULLS & 💀- WOOD & SKULLS SHAMBALLA BRACELET.  Clearly the skull has no shortage of symbolic interpretations, and the examples given here are only some of them.  Underlying all of them however is it's most common use as a symbol of our mortality.  As such, the skull reminds us that not only do none of us live forever, but conversely that each of our lives is that much more important because of it.  A skull crowned by a wreath of roses is referred to as a 'carpe diem', a reference to the Latin phrase in a poem by Horace, which is generally translated as 'seize the day.'  For Horace, mindfulness of our own mortality is key in making us realize the importance of the moment: "Remember that you are mortal, so seize the day."

From this point of view, the skull is no longer symbolic of anything dark or evil, but instead becomes a positive symbol that encourages us to live life to its fullest.
