The Autumn 2020 range of pins celebrates the wonderful and unique Scottish art found on seventeenth century tombs.

From the early 1600s Scots would increasingly have carved icons added to their tombstones, to convey certain messages about either themselves or the need to live a good life.

Memento Mori was a very popular motto in the early modern period - literally translated as 'remember to die', it was meant to serve as a reminder of the grave, and so to live well and make the most of things while you could.
