Icones Mortis is a book published in 1648 and features illustrations attributed to the renowned German artist Hans Holbein the Younger (1497-1543). The book's title translates to "Icons of Death" in English. It is a collection of sixty images, accompanied by verses and text, depicting various aspects of death and mortality.

The book's illustrations are known for their detailed and often macabre depictions of death, including skeletons, graves, and scenes related to mortality. The accompanying text provides further context and reflections on the themes of mortality and the transitory nature of life.

Icones Mortis is considered a significant work in the genre of memento mori art, which serves as a reminder of the inevitability of death and the need to contemplate one's mortality. It reflects the artistic and philosophical sensibilities of the time and continues to be of interest to scholars and enthusiasts studying art and symbolism from the 17th century.
