Saint Victoria of Rome: A life-sized saint in the church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, Rome. What was This rose-crowned and slashed-neck lady? Waxwork? Effigy? Reliquary? Or some combination of the above? When first you look at this, you think it must be a waxwork. But when you look a little closer, into the slightly open mouth you see, through the open lips of a skeleton. And if you look at the hands on the outside, they appear to be wax. But look inside. You can see not just the skeletal bones of the real hand of the human body but actually the dry skin there too. This is the body of Saint Victoria. - Joanna Ebenstein, go to MorbidAnatomy.com for video & more info.
