In Hallstatt, Austria their is a tradition of painting the skulls of the deceased. The skull is cleaned and exposed to sun and moonlight until it becomes bleached white by the elements. The Skulls are then elaborately decorated with hand painted flower designs and crosses . Just as other cultures decorate graves with flowers the skulls are painted with a symbolic crown of flowers.
