church of bones


Frantisek Rint was a wood carver commissioned by the Schwarzenberg family to create pieces of art from the thousands of bones found in the ossuary. Not only did he create the huge ‘bone bells’ as shown in the wallpaper above, but chalices, the Schwarzenberg family coat of arms, and a chandelier featuring every bone found in the human body.

Saw the Kostnice ossuary on a TV show once, long ago – would love to visit, but it’s too far away. Great photo.
