Skulls are widely known as a symbol of death and danger. Only recently skull motif became popular in street fashion, previously being reserved for punk or emo subcultures. This deadly symbol is also ubiquitous in Japan as well. However, it conveys a different meaning than in Western cultures.
Human skull, from a Buddhist point of view, represents change –for example, the one from life to death, which for Buddhists is merely just another rite of passage after which one’s soul will be born again in another being through reincarnation.
Skulls are also often used as a talisman, based on a belief that evil spirits will be driven away if they see something scary. Makes sense, don’t you think?
