I don't know who Toby de Silva is, but I do know that Paul Koudounaris published an amazing book on this: Heavenly Bodies.

I'm glad you asked that. I have a couple of wonderful books with photos.

The best ones I have seen myself were in Italy and The Czech Republic.

The inspiration we used was from the catacomb saints from the book Heavenly Bodies. The skeletons ordained in jewels were pulled from the catacombs, so as you can imagine they're old and jacked.

For those interested, there was a book published a little while ago with full-colour photos of these skeletons. http://www.amazon.com/Heavenly-Bodies-Treasures-Spectacular-Catacombs/dp/0500251959
