La Pascualita was first installed in a shop window on March 25, 1930, dressed in a wedding dress. The effect was startling. People just passersby could not tear his eyes from the dummy, with wide-set glass eyes, real hair and almost natural skin tone. They soon realized that the owner of this like a mannequin store, Pascuala Esparza. After a while, they came to the conclusion that the dummy is actually the embalmed body of her daughter, who died recently, on her wedding day, after being bitten by black widow spider.
Such a discovery could not remain indifferent locals, and they began to express their disapproval. But by the time Pascuala issued an official statement denying the rumors, it was too late. Nobody wanted to believe this statement. Name of the daughter of the owner went into oblivion and was forgotten after many years, but the name «La Pascualita» preserved to this day.
Of course, the assumption that the body is naturally accompanied by all sorts of supernatural events, myths, magic. Some strange rumors have been reported, but none of which has not been confirmed. Once said that love French magician come at night and magically lead mannequin to life, stole it from the city.
Some believe that her opinion is shifting and follows them around the store. In the night, it also changes its position near the window. These stories sound awesome. Perhaps most of all, they appear by store employees who see Pascualita every day. Clothes dummy changed twice a week behind closed curtains. Sonia Burciaga, an employee working in the store said: "Every time I close Pascualita, I'm breaking into a cold sweat. Mannequin hands look very realistic and she even has varicose veins in the legs. I believe that she is a real person ". Can be really Pascualita 75th corpse? I was very curious and wanted to see and know it myself.
But although most locals believe the Chihuahua, La Pacualita actually a well-preserved corpse, the Internet is full of explanations why this can not be true. Museum of hoaxes, for example, says that "embalming are not subject to the preservation of such a great view outside. For some reason, people tend to think that to preserve the body, it is much easier than it actually is, "and a commentator adds: -" Yes, indeed, the internal organs under the influence of an open environment, we should start to decompose too quickly, even if you will take supernatural action to stop. Both Lenin and Mao are controlled in special circumstances. Most things are carried out, and a funeral home is done to the body to look good before the burial. All that remains is for two weeks, after which the process is still a constant process of destruction of the body. What do you think?
