"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

The Biru Skull Wall is located on the Dordorka Celestial Burial Grounds iin Caqu Township in Biru County, Nakchu Prefecture, Tibet. The Grounds cover 4,000 square meters, with the Celestial burial platform built on the hillside nearby. The skulls, which are still being added to from sky burials carried out within the courtyard, are placed in neat rows and set into wooden blocks, looking like large bookshelves which are in turn set into the inside of the courtyard’s 6 feet clay walls. The southern and western walls are complete with wooden frames each with four to five skulls piled within.
