This Pin with the phrase Ars Longa Vita Brevis is a tribute to the world of art from which I come. This phrase has been like a mantra for me in some cases and an inspiration in others.
As a fan of pins, my little collection could not miss one like this, and the best way was to make it myself. With a simple design and with the colors of Promise Land Creations (maroon and gold) this has been my first pin created. In the future I would love to be able to offer more pins made with hard enamel like this, but for now here I present my little baby ??
The pin reads: Ars longa, vita brevis which is a Latin translation of an aphorism that originally comes from the Greek. This Latin quote quotes the first two lines of the aphorism of the Ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates. The well-known Latin translation Ars longa, vita brevis reverses the order of the original lines, emphasizing the lasting impact of art on the brevity of life.
Metal and hard enamel.
