Look up – and check out our gnarled chandelier! The skeleton chandelier is a replica of a real chandelier found in a church in the Czech village of Sedlec.
In the 1880s, the church was to be renovated when a macabre find was made – a mass grave containing skeletons mainly from people who had died from the plague during the 14th century. The sculptor František Rint used the bones to decorate the church, among other things he made a huge chandelier. Our skeleton chandelier is a replica of František's chandelier.
The way in which bodies have been treated after death has varied, depending both on culture and time period. Nowadays in Sweden cremation is most common.
