Displayed in the Saint-Étienne church in France is the figure of René de Chalon, Prince of Orange. The prince died at the young age of 25 during the siege of Saint-Dizier in 1544. 
Rather then memorialize him in the standard hero form, his wife requested (or René himself requested, or possibly both) that he be shown as “not a standard figure but a life-size skeleton with strips of dried skin flapping over a hollow carcass, whose right hand clutches at the empty rib cage while the left hand holds high his heart in a grand gesture.” (Source)

Robert Crumb by Katsuhiro Otomo. mangaidiot:

Some Ralph Bakshi in Otomo Katsuhiro’s Sayonara Nippon. EDIT! I meant, of course, some Robert Crumb in Otomo’s etc. (n.b. I didn’t mean that at all. For some reason my brain severed Crumb and Fritz. I guess in my life i’ve seen more Bakshi than i’ve read Crumb? Who knows. Apologies!)
