Iron Mortsafe, 1816 "Bodies for dissection were in short supply in the early 1800s as only executed criminals could be dissected legally. Body-snatchers, also known as ‘resurrectionists’, robbed the graves of the newly deceased, often in the middle of the night, and then sold the corpses to anatomists. First appearing in 1816, Mortsafes protected the dead. In this example, the sheer weight of the lid was expected to put off even the most desperate body-snatcher."
Post Mortem portrait in open casket at a funeral in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I think they sometimes did these photos outside before the funeral because sunlight is stronger outdoors and a photo is easier.
Leonardo da Vinci This engraving has been based on a painting by an unknown artist which in turn has been based upon a red chalk drawing thought to be a self-portrait of Leonardo. This engraving is an image representing Leonardo, not a true portrait.
