Palermo, Sicily (catacombs) Santa Maria d. Pace child mummy

This site has an amazing history, and holds a prominent place in Chapter Two of the book. For anyone interested in macabre art, I would place this at the top of the list of must-see sites. Incidentally, the period attire worn by the mummies also makes it the finest museum of fashion history I have ever been to.
