Photo of the Day - 10/31/2014

In honor of Halloween, I'm posting the creepiest photo I have (at least in my opinion.

This was taken in a town named Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic.  Back in the 17th century, they started having a problem.  People kept dying (as people are know to do), but there wasn't space to bury the bodies.  The solution was to build an ossuary to store the bones of the longer deceased.

Cut to the mid-late 1800s.  An enterprising Victorian age artist looks at all the bones and says to himself "What great materials for an art installation!"  So he builds all storts of decorations in the ossuary using the bones.  There's an altar.  There are several candelabra hanging from the ceiling.  There are other decorations.  Strategic lighting in caves built of different types of bones.

Here's a coat of arms.  All bones.  Happy Halloween!
