74 Macabre Art Collections

From Breaded Skulls to Drowning As Art

— May 16, 2009 — Unique
The description 'macabre' certainly covers the darker side of life, suggesting at the horrors around death and decay. In the instance of this cluster, it would be hard to find a better description with drowning children, painted skulls and the heads of dead animals all featured.

One of the most striking things about this gathering of the gruesome is that macabre intent can be applied to most situations, from fairy tales to snow globes. Enjoy this one at your own peril.
