The symbolism behind bones and skulls has been around for centuries. Although seeing them is sort of creepy because it reminds us of our mortality, it’s also quite fascinating to know that they remain long after we are gone. In biology and medicine, our bones play an important role. Without them, nothing would support our bodies.
Nowadays, bones can represent a number of things. For example: broken bones are scary as they can convey threat or danger. In psychology, they could mean weakness as well. Skeletons signify secrets, as in the old idiom, ‘skeleton in the closet’. In Tarot however, drawing the death card (with the skeleton drawing) is a positive sign as it signifies change, renewal, and life cycle.
Don’t let a bag of bones frighten you. Instead, use them, like these bone fonts, to make your designs stand out.
