Every Girl Crazy ’bout a Sharp Dressed Skeleton

heavenly-6If you’re into skeletons and costume jewelry, and at this time of year who isn’t, you’re gonna love this. Photographer Paul Koudounaris just put out a new set called, “Heavenly Bodies – Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints From The Catacombs.”  Basically it’s just a group of photos taken of bedazzled skeletons in the catacombs of Rome. The spectacular part comes from how thoughtfully jeweled these bones are.

In 1578 word spread of the discovery in Rome of a network of underground tombs containing the remains of thousands of early Christian martyrs. Many skeletons of these supposed saints were soon removed from their resting place and sent to Catholic churches in Europe to replace holy relics that were destroyed during the Protestant Reformation. Once in place the skeletons were then carefully reassembled and enshrined in costumes, wigs, jewels, crowns, gold lace, and armor as a physical reminder of the heavenly treasures that awaited in the afterlife.

Would I visit the catacombs to see these skeletons myself? No. Would I go with a tour group and steal the ring off of one of their bony fingers thereby cursing my family for the rest of eternity. That’s a definite maybe.

Hit the jump for the rest of the set.
