Cities of the Dead

The afterlife… What awaits us beyond the limits of our physical existence and our imagination is more or less a secret. The unknown.

01. Cemetery of the Capuchin Fathers, Rome, Italy (beneath the Church of the Immaculate Conception)

Like a place brought to life from grotesque stories… More than 4,000 skeletal remains believed to be Capuchin friars buried by their order stand next to the walls on display. The bones and skulls of the deceased monks are being used  for altars, out-of-this-world wall decorations, creepy chandeliers and hideous frescoes. Created to inspire people to prayer and meditation, it looks more like a terrifying sight that gives shivers to the visitors.

Described by Frommer’s as “one of the most horrifying images in all of Christendom“, but considered by Catholic order “a silent reminder of the swift passage of life on Earth“.

Q. How many Polacks does it take to change a light bulb? A. Three—one to hold the light bulb and two to turn the ladder. But what if their light bulb starts melting?

Q. How many Lilliputians does it take to screw in a light bulb? A. Two. You just put them in a light bulb and let them do it. What would happen if they decide to transform the light bulb into a flying ballon and travel around the world inside the dull. Sounds strange, right?



Some of those jokes might apply for the casual light bulbs… but not for the following ones. The world is continuously changing its shapes…

Shake It: Salt & Pepper

The weirdo in me is screaming! Even if I never gave so much importance to the salt & pepper in my life, it is never late to start.

Condiment lovers & dispenser collectors be prepared: wonderfully odd salt and pepper shakers. Silently waiting in a corner, on the table, ready to spice up most exquisite dishes with a little humor and share controversial smiles. I think I will become obsessed with these…

Angel or Devil? What would you chose? 😉 Designed by Koziol
