Whao!

That's a very confronting image, Zebigleb. It is very interesting to me that the pile of bones is stabilised with cement.
Zebigleb: It's an impressive place really.Very odd and in the same time something artificial...
That's a very powerful image. Some sort of statement needs to be made...
Zebigleb: Thank you Elisabeth. And I agree with this idea

Isn't it interesting to surmise who these people were and what sorts of life they led
Zebigleb: Great and philosophical question. Most of them have been killed by wars, starvation, disease and so on....

Many past lives, quite thought provoking.
Zebigleb: Something no far from Shakespeare no ?
It's a grizzly idea, isn't it? Well shot.
Zebigleb: Thanks Tom

That poor fellow in the middle had one half of his skull large and one small. That interests me greatly.
Zebigleb: Oh ? I didn't notice that point . Finely observed Mary
An ignominious end for the remains Zeb!
Zebigleb: Something of Shakespeare no ? Thank you for your visit Bill.

I wonder what these people would think of their bones being on display. Very interesting smile
Zebigleb: I've had the same idea when visiting. There's something indecent in this place...
One is marked with an "N"?!, fascinating stuff!
Zebigleb: Hi Juan. Don(t know what this "N" mean... Thank you for your comment
A powerful image.
Zebigleb: Glad you liked it Frank
C'est aussi impressionnant qu'en réalité Paul!
Bonne soirée
Zebigleb: Merci Richard. Bonne soirée à toi aussi
Glad it's not anybody I knew. > A striking shot.
Zebigleb: Did you ever imagine that somewhere among this wall of bones is the skul of one of your ancestor ? Hmmm ?
Thank you for your visit Jacquelyn

Yikes ... I have just spilt my strong coffee all over my croissant
Zebigleb: lol Richard. Come here in Paris and be sure I'll repay you more than a coffee smile
Chilling!
Zebigleb: That's the right word smile
