As tokens of love and remembrance, floral grave ornaments offer greater longevity than freshly cut flowers. The fragile evanescence of real flowers has, since the 15th Century, made them ideal subjects for representing the transience of life, mortality and death itself. 17th Century Vanitas painters in particular used the iconography of withering flowers as allegories of time, loss and absence
