    WOW, OFG - what a find. Looks like they have been there for years! Were you shocked to stumble upon this scene?

    I guess someone felt the need to make a cray design out of all of the bones...wonder if the arrangment was part of some ritual.

    wow...if only we knew the real story...very intriguing!!

    This is amazing. I was looking at the second pic thinking that it is a neat design, until I realized what it is. Oh my goodness. Very interesting find.

    My desire in photography is to capture the essence of life, to make others catch their breath at the purity of the moment captured, I'm still working on that.

    Great find =)

    The second pic caught my attention as the
    inner circle of skulls looks to have two
    additional skulls positioned at the 5'oclock
    and 9'oclock positions.

    I wonder if that has any significance?
