Glorious Jewelled Skeletons

SO AWESOME. For the two people who read me yet haven’t already seen these. Even back when I was reflexively anti-Catholic I was fascinated by reliquaries and similar examples of Catholic tenderness toward and adornment of the bodies of the dead. …This Daily Mail piece also gets points for describing one of the awesome skeletons as “louche.”
