Bejeweled European Skeleton Gods Discovered by Macabre Artist
[link to gawker.com]

The Catholic Church has bejeweled saints.

In the middle of the European Renaissance, these fantastic skeleton gods were being constructed in the bowels of Europe's Catholic churches. Los Angeles art historian and photographer Paul Koudounaris found these secret saints in catacombs and storage bins across the old Holy Roman Empire.

Made of real human bones and a shockingly vulgar amount of jewels and gold, these creations were constructed to replace older skeleton gods destroyed by Protestant uprisings. Late in the 16th Century, the Vatican began shipping these skeletons to its churches that survived the Reformation, so that believers would have "saints" to pray to once again—while named after popular Catholic saints, the origins of these skeletons are even more dubious than the better known relics of Europe.

The Catholic Church bejeweled skeletons to honor the saints and maybe to manipulate the followers of the church. I like it.
