    Memento Mori ring Late 17th century, The Ashmolean Museum

    The girl on the left is deceased & the phtographer painted her eyes on the photograph. This was common practice to include dead children in family portraits.

    Fairy girl. Post mortem photo, you can see the stand holding her up, and her eyes are painted on

    The Invisible Mother | Retronaut

    Portrait of deceased Woman with Fur Coat by Wisconsin Historical Images

    During a search for Victorian examples of post-mortem photography, I came across these mysterious and extremely odd vintage portraits of families in which the mother is disguised as a chair. In some cases there seems to be a real attempt to make the figure of the mother appear like an actual chair; in other cases,like this one it looks like they simply want to conceal the mother's identity. Maybe it's to keep a live child still enough to take a clear photo or to keep a deceased one in position.

    Genuinely creepy. POSSIBLE post mortem photo of the twin on the right. Stands were sometimes used to make the deceased seem alive. The R. Twins skin is discolored, the eyes are lifeless, arm hangs at his side and there's an unnatural leaning to his stance, whereas his brother has turned his head and is glancing up at him with trepidation. Live Siblings and surviving twins were often posed with their deceased siblings for post-mortem photos.

    Example of a postmortem photo where eyes have been painted onto the girls eyelids so it appears her eyes are open and that she is alert.

    From the time daguerreotypes became available c.1839, Memento Mori photos were a way of honoring & remembering the dead. The practice faded after about 1900 as cameras became common & people were likely to have other photos taken during life.
