Out of our Mind


Oh, but who said that the mind resides in this body, this head that, with time and the process of dying, becomes a carcass of a soul?... How wretched must this sight be, that the mind is but a fragment of existence. They were religious, monks who served their life and instincts to the Divine. Yet, you can see their bare heads staring at you like any other deceased. Is this the life?

Nice picture. Where did you take it? :)

It reminds me of the Sedlec chapel, which I want to visit one day :D

Wow, nice! This shot was taken in Meteora, Greece. Those were monks that gave their skulls to his ossuary.
