Bone Idol: The Ossuaries of Europe
Practical storage solution, morbid curiosity, or an important way to interact with the dead and contemplate our own mortality? Bones are the most enduring parts of our mortal remains, and ideas about what to do with them have ranged from the simple to the astoundingly elaborate. Human Remains Conservator Cat Irving will take you on a journey across Europe that will encompass painted skulls and bling skeletons, bone chandeliers and the six million people who lie beneath the streets of Paris.
