This video draws on the tradition of Momento Mori still life painting popular in the Netherlands and elsewhere in the 15th and 16th century. Their theme was the transience of life and death. This video is of a still life created by a medical CT scanner at the Academic Hospital Maastricht. It includes many of the same elements. 3D printed human skull (made from another ct scan), an hourglass, flowers, candles, a caliper, in addition to vile of zebra fish embryos.
