FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The remains of 10.000 bodies were the foundation for the interior design of the famous bone chapel located in Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic.

In 1870, woodcarver Frantisek Rint recreated the interior and furniture of the All Saints Chapel in Sedlec by just using human bones. The Sedlec Ossuary houses the remains of 40.000 people and 10.000 of them Rint used to create a huge eight-armed chandelier, garlands of skulls and even a coat of arms of the Schwarzenberg Family who acquired the church in that period. Rint's artwork will be a constant reminder of the inescapable death and the impermenance of life itself.
The author and passionate photograph Alois Gmeiner has worked as freelance PR consultant and in Advertising for the past twenty years. The Austrian has published over twenty books and photo-books so far.
