When I found this on Pinterest it was credited as being from The Unnaturalist on Tumblr, but despite scrolling through many pages I was unable to find it. That said, the account is a treasure trove of curiosities that’s well worth a look anyway.
So I have no details for this rather strange post mortem photograph – can anyone shed light?
edited: it occurs to me that this might be an example of one of those religious ceremonies that involves disinterring, decorating and reburying the body. What do others think?
