Samuele Jesi 1853 Bronze Death Medal in perfect condition.
The Samuele Jesi 1853 Bronze Death Medal is a poignant work of art created by the Italian sculptor Samuele Jesi. Crafted in 1853, it portrays death as a serene figure, conveying a sense of acceptance and inevitability. The reverse side depicts a departing soul, showcasing Jesi’s exceptional skill in capturing human form. Inscribed with the Latin phrase “Mors Janua Vitae” meaning “Death, the Gateway to Life,” the medal symbolizes the cyclical nature of existence. This piece encourages contemplation on the transience of life and the acceptance of mortality. Recognized for its artistic and philosophical depth, the medal holds value for collectors and art enthusiasts, serving as a testament to Jesi’s mastery and its enduring resonance with viewers.
