The Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech town Kutna Hora is decorated with human bones made into shields, chalices, chandeliers and all kinds of art. It is a very unique location. This website has pictures and information.

A couple more links

I saw this place on a tv program a few years back so when you mentioned it I remembered, it's so bizarre and yet beautiful artwork. the second link has a lot of pictures

wow now that is what i call recycling.

Its hard to understand sometimes how are ideas about death has changed you could never do that with human remains today it would be considered barbaric. But for them it combined death and there religious beliefs. Quite remarkable really

some of these pictures look like certain terrace anomalies on mars. This thread is depressing me i want to believe in the ancient astronaught theory but nature looks like it can be wierd enough to throw up decidedly un-natural anomalies!!

I don't think anyone has posted these here:





These images are of the Remarkable Rocks on Kangaroo Island...





These two pictures are by Australian photographer Peter Jarver. His work just amazes me at how gprgeously he captures nature in all it's simplistic essence, in all its glory

It's true that there are the most incredible and awe-inspiring things right in front of us. I think it's all a matter of perception.

Thanks for this thread No Name it's very refreshing. I haven't seen a lot of these wonderful pictures. We live in an amazing world and we all so easily forget to admire the beauty that is all around us so thanks for the reminder.

I have always thought that the deep ocean is the most alien place on the planet, but that's probably because we have explored a very small percent of it. It seems like everyday we find something new and alien.

I have a couple of landscape pics that I found interesting ,but mostly deep sea. I think everyone will enjoy them.

Interesting, thanks for sharing! I only knew about this place in Paris: Paris catacombes.

Great place to visit once you get over claustrophobia!


Oh and
to everyone who posted here, cool thread!

Some of the stuff already built and some of the stuff they are currently building in Dubai looks like sci-fi.
















Some of these are nearly done, some are forecast to be done within the next few years.

Ok this is one of the greatest threads here ever.

And this may not be that alien looking - it was from the site the initial pics were from - and it was too funny to resist....

Than you, daphne!!

You've just made this insomniac laugh out loud.

Excellent thread, what a welcome break from some of the angst generated on others.

I am taking you up on that offer, and post an image of the fantastic Giant's Causeway in Ireland. It’s an area made up of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. The steps are the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.



More photos of these wonderful formations here:

I hope there's not an arial view of this or Richard Hoag is going
post more proof of Buildings on Mars.

I'll vote also for the Giants Causeway but I admit being biased because I've been there quite a few times in my youth.

I noticed it was in the new Hellboy movie as well although you didn't get a good look at it really.

Wow! Absolutely amazing!! Excellent find!
Now I wonder, if we've been zonked looking at this, what would our reactions be if we ever had the chance to see the flora and fauna on alien planets? Probably pass out with shock!

This entire thread, with all of the fabulous pictures, shows that sometimes incredible natural formations can occur, even those that resemble 'animals'...but it also shows that life is tenacious....and evolution is incredibly adaptable.

Ony hope I live long enough to see real evidence of ET life. Then, I can die happily....unless I jump into my time machine and jump ahead, te read the history.

I love this thread!


Take a look at these guys. Pretty creepy and alien looking, don't you think:



A hatchetfish has extremely thin body, resembling the blade of a hatchet, and tubular large eyes that are permanently fixed looking upwards - this helps them to search for food falling from above. It also gives them a psychotic look, with eyes rolled up and stuck there.


And another a little more innocent looking creature. It's a "Piglet squid":



Lots of other images of strange and beautiful marine life here:
