This is a photograph of blood and embalming fluid. It’s part of underbunny’s …undertaking set, which is really worth checking out. The photographer is an undertaker, and she shares artistic and informative photos of the process. They make death seem less frightening to me.

All of my grandparents have passed away, and the one whose death seemed the least tragic and scary was that of my mom’s dad. I think this is because I actually got to spend a lot of time with him as he was dying. It was beautiful.
