Decorated skulls at Hallstatt. The tradition of skull painting began in 1790, when members of the deceased’s family started painting flowers and crowns of flowers on the skull of their loved one. Some of the skulls also have the name of the deceased painted on them, the dates of birth and death and some kind of symbol depicting the cause of death.

    Great-Aunt Lavinia’s skull lives on my dressing-table. It’s got a lovely guillotine painted on it.
