Mourning is, in the simplest sense, grief over someone's death. The word is also used to describe a cultural complex of behaviours in which the bereaved participate or are expected to participate. Customs vary between cultures and evolve over time, though many core behaviours remain constant.

Due to strict mourning rituals in the century, when a woman was in mourning she couldn’t wear anything flashy, even shiny pins keeping her clothing together. These mourning pins resemble thin black nails.

Because of strict mourning rituals, when a woman was in mourning, she couldn’t wear or display anything bright or flashy — even shiny pins keeping her clothing together. So women would use these mourning pins to button their clothes. The pins resemble thin black nails.

Bijoux et Vanités

"Vanité des vanités, tout est vanité" ... Au IIIème siècle avant Jésus Christ, les textes de l'Ecclésiaste mettaient en balance l'oeuvre dérisoire de l'Homme face à la mort. Ensuite, c'est l'Art qui a pris le relais dans ce rappel à l'humilité. A travers 150 pièces originales, le Musée Maillol met aujourd'hui en perspective les différentes approches de la mort selon les époques et les artistes.
