Stunning skeleton art

If you're currently busy writing your will and having a real Sophie's Choice moment over whether you should choose cremation or burial then we may be able to help.

Ashes are, well ashes, and haven't yet provided the basis for any great art. But as artist François Robert has shown, bones are totally awesome. In the 90s he purchased a human skeleton from an auction at a former school and went about dissecting it to make these wall-worthy pics. The collection has been titled The Art of Violence and the pieces all represent weaponry, religious symbols or other destructive images.

Don't go skeleton-hunting on eBay too eagerly though. It took Mr. Robert "hundreds of hours" to complete the project.
