Lionel Batiste, embalmed and standing, at his wake on 19 July in New Orleans.

Any insights into how this is done welcome.

More pics of Batiste here.

Brilliant! A very clever embalmer and a great read for the train journey, thank you. Not a clue how it was done though.

I suspect steel rods will have played a major part in this embalming.
