Artist's Description

Photographed near a chapel in Hallstatt, Austria

“There is so little place for cemeteries that every ten years bones used to be exhumed and removed into an Ossuary, to make room for new burials. A collection of elaborately decorated skulls with the owners’ names, professions, death dates inscribed on them is on display at the local chapel.”
