A capuchin church in Rome maintains a crypt in which the skeletal remains of 4 thousand deceased monks are kept. Skulls form an arch with a mummified monk standing guard
The bones in the crypt are nailed to the wall and arranged in
patterns: cross, floral, arch, triangle and circle, as well as forming
objects. A large clock is composed of vertebrae, foot bones and finger
bones. The single hour hand represents the idea that time has no
beginning or end.
