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)

Rebecca Stevenson

A lot Rebecca’s beautiful sculptures (casts) make me think of rotting corpses that have been infested either in life or after death with fungal blooms and flowers erupting from bone and flesh. Below are a few of her pieces that include skulls but make sure to check out the rest of her sculptures as they are great.d in Skull Sculpture.
