Paul Koudounaris: Heavenly Bodies

Written by Andrea on . Posted in Books, photography

Death has never looked so beautiful. The fully articulated skeleton of a female saint, dressed in an intricate costume of silk brocade and gold lace, withered fingers glittering with colorful rubies, emeralds, and pearls-this is only one of the specially photographed relics featured in Heavenly Bodies. Cult Treasures and Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs.
