Kutna Hora

Kutna Hora pictures. Kutna (or Kutná) Hora is a small Czech town not far from Prague, whose most interesting sight is the Sedlec Ossuary, which is a museum of fascinating (though morbid) human bone sculptures (for example, a chandelier which includes all the bones in the human body, and a complete coat-of-arms made of bones). The sculptures were made out of the bones of 40,000 people, and were created by a local woodcarver called Frantisek Rindt in 1870.
