These Mini Skull candles are adorable and are a great addition to your altar. One of the classical meanings of the Skull is that of “memento mori”, which means to "remember your mortality". The ancient Greek philosophers that practiced Stoicism, Neoplatonism and Epicurean philosophy often pondered on the meaning of death, a subject that has not been diluted over time. One that was most probably taken from the ancient Sanskrit of the Verdict system.
It is through this practice that philosophers maintain tranquility in the midst of the tumultuous circumstances of life. Inward concentration can be thought of dying before you die. This will assist in living in the present and making the most of your life, it will assist you to live in whatever Nirvana you choose.
Others use skulls as a representation of their ancestors and the wisdom they hold.
