one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
I'm not sure I'd want to see my dear departed's death mask. Would you?-----Je ne suis pas sûre d'avoir envie de voir le masque mortuaire de mes chers défunts. Le souhaiteriez-vous?
Especially staring through the window at me....
No , I would not! I prefer to keep a living and smiling memory! brrr!
I think it would be very moving but I prefer to remember their happy smiling faces.
il fait froid dans le dos ce masque mortuaire
I agree with Nathalie that I prefer to remember the departed in their alive times. When each of my perents passed away, we used photos of them in their 20's for the newspaper obituary. That is definiately what my mother would have wanted.
I dont think I would like it either...Or.. my own...Great post...Costas
Have to grin at 'departed' translating to something reminiscent of 'defunct'.
And the top photo makes it look like it's in prison! I've seen copies of Napoleon's and George Washington's death masks and they creep me out.
I would never sleep again if forced to have a death mask near me.
