† Capela dos Ossos †
Custom-Printed, Handmade Ossuary Skirts by Sexy Deathray
An ossuary is a site or building where human remains in the form of bones are stored or displayed. Such places were once commonplace, especially in locations where burial space was limited, but are now quite a culture shock to most people. Reactions range from disgust to fascination. Although morbid, many of these sites are extremely beautiful, utilizing bones to create or decorate ornate architectural elements. They are often associated with churches or monasteries. The Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic, famous for its chandelier made of human bones, is probably the most well-known, but there are many other such sites throughout the world.
