Caput mortuum

Caput Mortuum (#592720) is a somewhat saturated and warm shade of red commonly associated with traditional (78.5% match), mature (78.4% match), and rich (78.0% match). When Caput mortuum is combined with Dark Goldenrod, it appears mature and rich. When joined with Dark Purple, the mood becomes more serious. When Caput mortuum is added to Tyrian Purple, it evokes serious and wild feelings. When paired with its complementary color #20535A, a darker and less saturated variant of the shade "Dark Slate Gray", it can convey dapper or mature emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #205927 (a shade of "Hunter Green") and #272059 (a shade of "Space Cadet"), the resulting palette becomes softer and warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "sophisticated" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a majestic and elaborate atmosphere.
