Catacumbas 5
Lima, Perú

Underneath San Francisco de Asis and related buildings are the bones of some 20,000 priests, monks, and clergy. Neatly organized by bone type (and in some cases size), these bones have been down there for almost 500 years. After the decree of one generation, they stopped this ritual. This particular photo made me a little concerned. I think the embalming fluids got to their heads one day when production was light.
