Whoa! Momento mori is intense stuff... A common stand used in post mortem photography. Used in the 1800s to prop up deceased relatives for an image that provided a precious keepsake of a loved one.

Post-mortem photograph. Woman holding her dead child in her arms. The little girl's corpse's eyelids are painted with 'her eyes' to make her look alive for the photograph. After death photographs were a popular Victorian trend; photography was a new technology and, though expensive, afforded a new way for families to remember their past loved ones.
