A new project describes an Austrian bone house, or "beinhaus... or charnel house, is the place at a church or graveyard where the bones of the deceased are kept after exhumation."
As one would decorate a grave with flowers, the skulls were painted by the local gravedigger. Earth pigments were used, and the women’s skulls were painted with colorful flowers, the men’s with ivy leaves. The deceased’s date of birth and death were written on their forehead.
Let ghosts explain their deadly driving "Mistakes". This is a cruel, sad, manipulative, and brilliant ad:
There's a lot going on here, such as the nice use of being-on-the-cusp-of-death perspective, a la Carnival of Souls (1962). A powerful sense of inevitability seeps from the ad, as the two adults confront their doom with a lack of agency. And the horrible stare from the child.
Car safety ads have always been Gothic. Splatterpunk, even.
