Artist's Description

Santa Maria dell’Orazione e Morte, via Giulia (St. Mary of Prayer and Death) in Rome, Italy.

The main theme of this church is death. In the 16th century, this church collected the bodies of the unknown dead so that they could be given a Christian burial. Ferdinando Fuga decorated the facade’s doors and windows with winged skulls and an ancient hourglass, called a clepsydra, is located above the central entrance to the church. The hourglass is a symbol of death.
