Some creepy stuff (be forewarned!)

I found some good “creepy” today in the museum associated with the Duomo.

First, the relics of San Clemente Martire dating back to 1720.  The relics are essentially his skull and a few bones.  OK, it is not as good as a head (which actually still have the skin, etc) but it is the best I can photograph right now!

Then a couple of grotesques, one of which has a human face and really a bit disturbing.  I like gargoyles and grotesques, though.  They keep the Boogey Men away!
