May 16, 2010: Dem Bones II

Unlike Dem Bones I, Dem Bones II aren't animal bones.
Francois Robert used human bones to make these pieces.



Quote:
"Bones have always fascinated me," says Robert. His portfolio has always included images of animal skulls, recovered from the desert. He once spent five weeks photographing skulls in the collection of the Field Museum of Natural History. By 2007, the recession was taking its toll. "I had so much extra time. What was I going to do with it?" He turned to the skeleton in his locker.
Robert realized that his skeleton was limited: it was wired together for display. He decided he wanted a skeleton he could take apart. Online, he found a source for disarticulated human skeletons, and he traded his in, and took delivery of a box containing 206 separate bones, each the real thing, not plaster or resin.
He arranged them into a picture, photographed it, then tore it apart to make the next piece. Better than becoming a serial killer, or grave robber, I suppose.

I had no idea you could order human skeletons on the internet. This is just what I need for the next Halloween party.

I won't make the obvious reference to a boner.

Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedlec_Ossuary

Quote:
The Sedlec Ossuary (Czech: kostnice Sedlec) is a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints (Czech: Hřbitovní kostel Všech Svatých) in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora in the Czech Republic. The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, many of whom have had their bones artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.
The guy who designed it signed his name in foot tall letters in human bones.

Buncha sick bastards that make artwork out of people's bones. They probably think it's funny when Kenny gets killed too.
