That is one beautiful piece of art headed by a magnificently screwed up plural. (According to http://languagehat.com/one-memento-mori-two-memento-mori/, the plural of memento mori is still memento mori...)

Came here to say that. If I'm not mistaken, "memento morae" means "remember delays", if it's at all grammatically sensible.

According to the profound Latinity of Google and Wikipedia, memento would take pretty much any case except a nominative, so my best guess is genitive singular.
However, even the original is widely frowned upon as a mediaeval corruption, so one could probably get away with anything remotely plurally sounding.
