Art, Architecture, Aesthetics| Paris| France

The Adorned Dead| Sedlec Ossuary| Kutná Hora

“ The Bone Church at Kutna Hora reverberates the Christian message that advocates for equality of humans in the sight of God. Once striped bare, the differences are none.  In troubled times, irrespective of one's religious or non-religious affiliations, the greater message conveyed by the indistinguishable piles of bones holds true. ”
