The Bones & Bobbins Podcast, Season 1, Episode 3: What Remains Can Be Seen
S01E03: Death Masks, the Unknown Woman of the Seine, and the Paris Catacombs.
Throughout history, death has always been the topic of SO MUCH art. But, in this episode, that art actually IS death itself. Settle in while Haley and Natali discuss the art and craft of death masks (complete with a tangent on rockstar naughty bits), and the never-ending endeavour of turning centuries of bones into architecture in the Paris Catacombs.
