My guess is that the sculptor had lots of skeletons around that he was able to get first hand experience seeing and details from. Do a google search of events that happened in the 1500's. This was around the time when the Ottoman Empire invaded Europe beginning in Hungary, then Rhodes and followed by Austria.
During these times it probably wasnt uncommon to see alot of human bodies left to rot or feed the birds etc, and seeing all this death was probably the inspiritation for the sculpture.
