The drawing employs a double image (or visual pun) in which the scene of a woman admiring herself in a mirror, when viewed from a distance, appears to be a human skull. The first reaction that “it’s a skull” is natural. Most folks never pick up the details until they get a bit closer. The actual image, of course, being of an attractive woman at her make-up table. It’s a striking illusion and we’ll let you render your own meaning from it. Skull symbolism is the attachment of symbolic meaning to the skull, generally human.
