skull and bones sedlec ossuaries inspired wall plaque
This wonderful plaque was inspired by the "Sedlec Ossuaries". Hidden in small towns across Europe, buried under 15th century church cemeteries, lie vast and elaborate subterraneous cathedrals meticulously decorated with human bones. Covering every inch of wall space these bones embellish walls, ceilings, and are turned into plaques, and chandeliers. If you have ever gasped at the profound beauty of these churches, or dream of visiting them some day. Satisfy your morbidly desire of honoring the dead, by decorating your home with homages like this plaque.
This particular stone is named "Piedra de la Protection", and we feel that hanging it in your home will bring you protection. This plaque is one of 3 created in this series (see photo #5) . Each plaque has a parchment embedded in the back, that tells its story and inspiration (see photo #4). Any one or all of these plaques would make a beautiful house warming gift for anyone with a love of the macabre.
