We've all encountered the image of a skull at least once in our lives, in various different settings. Some people don't delve too deeply into its meaning and simply view it from an ethical standpoint. Others associate it with death, which can make it seem ominous and unlucky. And then there are those who imbue it with magical properties and significance. Have you ever pondered the true symbolism behind the combination of a skull and bones?
The skull image with two crossed bones is commonly referred to as "Adam's head" or "Dead head". It originated from Christianity and is recognized as a symbol of overcoming death and achieving salvation. This legend inspired the creation of various frescoes, including Fra Beato Angelico's "The Crucifixion of Christ".
Art has often featured the skull motif, dating back to ancient times such as the mosaic of Pompeii, where it represented the unpredictability of fate. The symbol of the "dead head" has been utilized by various military forces, including British, French, German, Italian, Hungarian, Austrian, Finnish, Bulgarian, and Russian troops throughout history. This emblem has been present in significant events such as the First and Second World Wars, the Russian Civil War, and the German Revolution, featuring prominently in the Russian Imperial Army.
