Maybe that town in Brazil where the graveyards are filled up ought to consider this idea.

Weird…

Here’s a page about her. If you can’t read it, bablefish will translate it in about 30 seconds.

It doesn’t look very ex-life-like to me, i’d say she was just a normal manequinn.

I agree, from the photo’s she looks very fake. It might be different in real life, but going just by the pics, she looks like any other store dummy but with more makeup.

“She started to receive abusive phone calls from angry citizens who accused her of embalming her daughter,” the store’s present owner Mario Gonzalez said in his office above the wood-paneled shop floor.

...There was a town full of people with phones, in Mexico, 75 years ago???

Well, it is the state capitol, Maegan.  And telephones were already old news by this time; telephone companies first got started back in the 1870’s (sixty years before the mannequin was put first put up), and you could call across the Atlantic already by the 20’s.

But this isn’t the Atlantic.  It’s the desert.  A lot of people in Mexico NOW don’t have phones.

75-80 yrs ago…early 20s??  I’m not seeing the average Mexican with a phone in their home.

There would have been a fair number of the wealthier Mexicans in town, though, and they would have had telephones.

I still don’t think she’d have gotten a bunch of harassing phone calls.
