In a strange place at the moment. For me this is a place i can for once be honest and not hold back anything. I have chosen to run a black and white blog because i like the purity and darkness it expresses.

Capuchin Crypt

The Capuchin Crypt is a small space comprising several tiny chapels located beneath the church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini on the Via Veneto near Piazza Barberini in Rome, Italy. It contains the skeletal remains of 3,700 bodies believed to be Capuchin friars buried by their order. The Catholic order insists that the display is not meant to be macabre, but a silent reminder of the swift passage of life on Earth and our own mortality. Described by Frommer’s as "one of the most horrifying images in all of Christendom", large numbers of the bones are nailed to the walls in intricate patterns, many are piled high among countless others, while others hang from the ceiling as light fixtures.

When the monks arrived at the church in 1631, moving from the old monastery, they brought 300 cartloads of deceased friars. Fr. Michael of Bergamo oversaw the arrangement of the bones in the burial crypt. The soil in the crypt was brought from Jerusalem, by order of Pope Urban VIII. As monks died during the lifetime of the crypt, the longest-buried monk was exhumed to make room for the newly deceased who was buried without a coffin, and the newly reclaimed bones were added to the decorative motifs. Bodies typically spent 30 years decomposing in the soil, before being exhumed. There are six total rooms in the crypt, five featuring a unique display of human bones believed to have been taken from the bodies of friars who had died between 1528 and 1870. 1. Crypt of the Resurrection, 2. The Mass Chapel, 3. Crypt of the Skulls, 4. Crypt of the Pelvises, 5. Crypt of the Leg Bones and Thigh Bones, 6. Crypt of the Three Skeletons. source | edit

Queen Victoria of England decided to show off her wealth by sending a crystal chandelier as a present to the Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul. This chandelier is the largest in the world, consists of 750 bulbs, and weighs a massive 4 tons.  The Tsar of Russia sent bearskin carpets and other world leaders sent expensive presents to complete the overall look.
