On Skulls and Blasphemy!

Hello Skinlovers.

Some one observed today that I have a slight (okay not so slight) obsession with skulls.And they added it that it was blasphemous and yet not.
So my reply was where is the blasphemy, Ossuarys/Ossuaries exist in ancient times and monasteries  Skulls are represented in all religions except Islam because physical representation of the work of God is anathema supposedly (that’s a discussion shelved for another time).

Since I was a child I have always been fascinated by the macabre and the grotesque, I do not see that as blasphemy or as creepy, just very Victorian. The Victorians had it right death was something to be respected not feared for in the end we all die, simplicity itself.

So in the spirit of Skullduggery here we go some skulls for your enjoyment:
