At First, I Thought This Was A Normal Mannequin. Then I Looked Closer. Oh My God
You won't believe your eyes when you see this eerie bridal shop mannequin from Mexico. The spooky back story behind it will give you chills. But are the horrifying rumors about this mannequin true? Or is it just an urban legend? What do YOU think? These photos are crazy!
Authiel E  Clearly, a good number of people commenting know nothing about corpse preservation. This mannequin has been on display for 75 years in open air, with no special conditions. A corpse needs CONSTANT maintenance and a controlled environment to stay preserved like that. The most remarkable older case of corpse preservation is Rosalia Lombardo, who is located in the Capuchin Catacombs in Sicily, and she's in a glass-topped coffin, in an environment that promotes mummification, and no one knows how her embalmer did it. Exposure to fresh air -- the kind of exposure La Pascualita is getting -- would compromise the preservation and cause her to decompose. Someone on here mentioned what seems to be Johnathan Bentham. Yes, he asked to be mummified. But it didn't work. His skeleton is on display, and the skeleton is dressed, with his clothing stuffed. His head is wax because the real one wasn't able to be preserved properly and looks horrific. Mummified skin often turns a shade of deep brown. Even resin-coated preservations -- the precursor to modern plastination -- turn that color and look dessicated. You can see them on display at establishments such as the College of Physicians (the Mutter Museum) in Philadelphia. This is too early a case for it to be plastination, as seen in the Bodies Exhibition, as we know it today. Modern embalming only preserves the corpse for the viewing and funeral, lasting anywhere from a few days to a week or so. My money is on life casting, and not necessarily of anyone's dead daughter. As for the fingernails -- it's far less a stretch of the imagination to think that the artist put fake nails on the mannequin than to say it's a corpse that's been preserved for over 75 years. It's so lifelike that it creeps people out, but it was never actually alive.
