The direct translation of the Latin phrase memento mori to English is something like remember you must die. The group Chouchou have with their build Memento Mori successfully captured in Second Life© a symbolic representation of this ancient notion. The sum of several parts (the monumental build, the angelical music, and the Chouchou HUD) all contribute to the immersive Memento Mori experience as a whole. I have visited many times and I am continuously struck by the sheer magic of this place. Head over and see for yourself.
