Get your best leather on, blast some Electric Wizard, and say a quick prayer to Satan, because we’re going to bone church.

The Sedlec Ossuary is a tiny Roman Catholic chapel beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in the Czech Republic. Back in the 1200s, Sedlec was considered especially pious, and therefore a very desirable to be buried. After a plague, a war, and some construction, the church had to exhume the bodies and had way more bones than they knew what to do with—so they hired František Rint, a wood carver, who turned the skeletons into chandeliers and stuff.

It’s not quite as metal as that band who allegedly made a stew out of their bandmate’s brain, but making art out of 70,000 skeletons has to count for something, right?
