Cow Skull Symbolism: Cows are highly respected and treated as sources of life across cultures. The cow skull pays homage to what was, the fruits of life and are an emblem of mortality. Protection from all natural elements, strength, courage and death.
Wild Rose Symbolism: A powerful symbol of passion. It is associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love. Also a symbol of balance and new beginnings. It is contrasted by thorns symbolizing defence and loss. The wild rose brings an open simplicity to these traits.
