Caligula Syndrome

A Multitudinous mass of masques, mania, musings, mutterings, mini-mutilations (and anything else you could possibly ever possibly hope to dream of) , and all from the glitter-and-gloom art-obsessed chimera brain of a po-mo homo/fledgling tattooist.

Displayed in the Saint-Étienne church in France is the figure of René de Chalon, Prince of Orange. The prince died at the young age of 25 during the siege of Saint-Dizier in 1544. 
Rather then memorialize him in the standard hero form, his wife requested (or René himself requested, or possibly both) that he be shown as “not a standard figure but a life-size skeleton with strips of dried skin flapping over a hollow carcass, whose right hand clutches at the empty rib cage while the left hand holds high his heart in a grand gesture.” (Source)
