    Bone Chalice. Sedlec Ossuary, Kostnice Sedlec, or "Bone Church" in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic. Bone pyramids were stacked in the ossuary by (according to legend) a half-blind monk around 1511, when a mass grave was unearthed and the bones needed a new home. In 1870, František Rint was emplyed to put the bones in order, and so the ex-woodcarver did; among his works of bone art, he left behind his signature in, of course, bones.

    Swan Bones Theatre. So lovely.
