SKULL ROSARIES - EARLY CHURCH TRADITION
We can track the use of skulls in prayer beads, rosaries and chaplets back to the late middle ages (1066-1485) . The custom was especially popular from the 15 century through the middle of the 19 cent in Italy, Germany and Mexico (from Spain) and in prayer counters from other religions.
Harold Hodges was a colorful character at Lightning Ridge during the 60’s and 70’s. Harold used to wear these dentures around town and eventually grew tired of being asked to smile for photos, so instead he had the denture cemented into the wall of the Diggers Rest Hotel. They are now on display at the Australian Opal Centre.
