  Kutna Hora - the emblem made of bones
by globetrott
 
 

The emblem of the Schwarzenberg family includes a raven, that picks out the eye of a Turque ( as one of them once expelled the turkish troups from Czechia )
I am not sure, whether this raven has the skeleton of a bird or human bones were carved that way by Frantisek Rint.
