Skeleton of the Week, August 5: Konrad II in Mondsee, Austria

SKELETON OF THE WEEK, AUGUST 5: KONRAD II IN MONDSEE, AUSTRIA

I keep thinking that I am going to be able to have to time write a post about some fanciful thing involving fanciful skeletons, like I did in the great halcyon days of two months ago. But I keep being wrong, because I have no time. So, please enjoy this picture of the skeleton of Konrad II in Mondsee, Austria, perhaps the fanciest skeleton I have ever photographed.


The book Heavenly Bodies by Paul Koudounaris, a history of skeletons taken from the Roman Catacombs, will be released Fall 2013 by Thames and Hudson. Images from the book will be featured in a gallery show at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles, and the book is available for pre-order via
