This image was taken in the Ossuary in Sedlec in The Czech Republic.

I have visited the Ossuary a few times, always in the depths of winter, and it is one of the most stange, but fascinating religious monuments I have visited. There are 40000 people buried in the grounds, and several thousand bones are displayed in the church.
