The catacombs under Paris
Overflow medieval cemeteries in Paris in the late 18th century led to the fact that the government ordered a mass burial.

Now the catacombs are known as “The Empire of Death” because there is really a huge amount of human remains.
Funeral team clearly wanted to distract from work, so the underground is the place where the remains are laid out in a certain order, with patterns and ornaments of human bones.
