Re: Man has statue of late wife created for him

There is nothing wrong with this.

 

Why, I priced a rubber and latex statue of one of the men in my life who I liked the best...it was WAAAAYYYYY too expensive to make the whole man, so I had to pick ONE part they could make within my budget.

OK, this reminds me of that macabre Vincent Price movie, House of Wax.

Kind of different, yeah. Better than taxidermy, which some do in the U.S. to keep their late pets close by.

Just no.  

 

I understand the Mughal Emperor commissioning the Taj Mahal as a tomb for his favorite wife.  So I get this guy building a bungalow to honor his dearly departed.

 

But having a life-like "statue" of her made to sit there?  And combing "her" hair?  

 

Just no.  A thousand times no.

@mspatmac - Perhaps you could just tell us in which cultures this is considered normal and save us a lot of time trying to google it, if you're familiar with this practice?

I showed this to my DH. 

 

He said it reminded him of Week-End at Bernie's.  LOL
