Beautiful imagery, like viewing a gnarled and aged tree, reading its lines for all the years it has seen.

Agreed, though some of those bodies look to me like they've held up a lot better than I ever thought a 100 year old would.

Yeah. I mean, obviously there's a bit of skewing going on there, since unhealthy bodies tend to die long before they reach 100. And still more skewing from self-selection bias, and so forth.
But still, it's impressive and somehow reassuring, even though there's verrrrrrry little chance my own body will look this functional and dignified at 100 (or the fraction of my final age that these bodies are at).

Gorgeous! The second to last one reminded me of water- and wind-swept canyons I've seen.
