    Wow,I love the lighting in this one.Especially the light over the cross. But the picture also peaks my curiousity.Is it a masoleum? And if so, I understand the crosses, but what is the significance of the two skull and bones in the foreground?

    this was St.Frances church. I did notice the skull and bones as a dominant in their icons adn christ statues compositions. I don't know why... It is a masoleum , on the walls are the compartments for each deceased person.
