The Ossuary at Kutna Hora

The pictures that you are about to see after you read this are not what you think they are.  They are NOT meant to be morbid, or scary, or just plain shocking.  The human bones from  40,000 people used to decorate this church are meant to convey a POSITIVE message that we should enjoy life NOW, as everything, except the SPIRIT, fades into oblivion.  Our beauty, or anything beautiful, like art, for that matter, fades over time.  Although I absolutely agree, these are not my thoughts.  These are the thoughts of the monks who used the bones from 40,000 people to ENSURE that you get the message that we are only here for the moment, that you should do EVERYTHING to enjoy life NOW, because YOU WILL DIE.  Yes, we all must die.  Therefore, say YES to LIFE.  For me this means more travel.  What do YOU want to do with YOUR life?  Do it NOW.  Don’t wait.

Prepare to be blown away as you see these…are…you…ready?

Chandelier made of all human bones!
Every one of these are skulls and bones!
Again and again…these are human bones and skulls behind me! 
The coat of arms are ALL made of human bone.
Hard to believe, I know.
I brought my Alexander McQueen scarf in honor…
