Skulls and Bones

by threedogsandahouse

One of my favorite iconographic images is a skull and bones. It’s Don’t-Mess-With-Me badass, universal and definitely not girly. Here in Rome I was surprised to find so many of these images (and real life skulls and bones) in the context of churches and religious orders. Seems like reminders of mortality are everywhere in the Eternal City.
