The mystery of the Sleeping beauty of Palermo Sicily Italy
« on: February 07, 2016, 10:33:10 PM »
This story might surprise, scare or maybe fascinate some of you?

I find it incredibly fascinating. Rosalia Lombardo (December 13, 1918 in Palermo, Italy – December 6, 1920), was an Italian child who died of pneumonia.

Rosalia’s father, Official Mario Lombardo, was sorely grieved upon her death, so he approached Alfredo Salafia, a noted embalmer, to preserve her. Her body was one of the last corpses to be admitted to the Capuchin catacombs of Palermo in Sicily. Looking at this dead child in 1920 now 96 years later she still looks and appears  to be asleep.....

Today she is famous as the most beautiful mummy in the world. Often called the Sleeping beauty.

She how ever pertains a mystery that even science have only come up with weak explanation for.. Her eyelids move partly from closed to partly open. If you look in the following photographs below you can see her with her eyes shut and other times her eye lids are partly open. What causes this is truly a remarkable mystery?

Thats strange, maybe something to do with nerve endings not being fully "dead".

Hello Alien88

It could be possible. It might be a testament to the skill of the embalmer that muscle that controls the eyelid is still flexible to move perhaps when sunlight from a window heat up the muscle partly expands and contracts?

Extraordinary regardless.
