Anyway, People had an article about these ancient bones that were removed from catacombs as early as 1578 and chronicled by Paul Koudounaris. Assuming these bones belonged to saints (because, why else would they have been preserved?), the gentle peasants saw fit to adorn and treat these noble skeletons with the respect they deserved.
To modern eyes, this is just ridiculous and a dreadful waste of sapphires, but here they are anyway.
I looked at these grotesqueries and immediately thought of captions for them. So here, for your pleasure, are my takes on these old bones.
