We all know they can symbolize death, the dark side, morbidity, anger, decay. But that is not even close to the deeper true meanings a skull can hold.
Skulls as a symbol of strength, protection, and overcoming challenges:
Skulls can symbolize overcoming difficult challenges even overcoming death.
They can symbolize strength and power, and offer the wearer protection. They can symbolize the death of an old life, a past that has been defeated and a change for the better has occurred. A rebirth has happened. The movement from one plane of existence to another. A big change that has happened, as the biggest change for any life on this planet is death.
In this life or the next, the skull is all that is left as the soul passed into another life.
A skull can even be a celebration of life.It can be a tribute, celebration of life, and respect for a loved one, as in Mexico and the Day of the Dead festival and the sugar skulls. They represent revered and respected family, a celebration of life. A time to honor our loved ones who have passed.
A reminder to live life to its fullest, and the inevitability of death is ever lurking. Death being unchanging for all life, skulls can symbolize eternity.
Skulls as rebellion: A symbol of rebellion, the iconoclast. The individual or separate from the government or authority as in pirate flags. Times of war the skull represents the death of enemies, revenge, and caution to those who cross their paths
