07-11-09 A Hand From the Grave

This is my third cemetery post in less than a month. I hadn’t planned on posting this particular photo because it really has no meaning outside of the context it was taken in. But people looking at my Croatia pictures have commented on it so I’ve decided to post it.

Now imagine strolling down the long arcade lined with family crypts (as seen in the first link) and coming to a crypt decorated with a skeleton with strange hands reaching out from the wall. Creepy. The cemetery is Mirogoj Cemetery in Zagreb, Croatia.

What are the hands for? Votive candles? Flowers? Who knows.
