An Indian man is said to have brought his dead wife “back to life” after spending nearly $3,000 on the procedure.
Tapas Sandilya, 65, lost his wife, Indrani, in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Before her death, Indrani allegedly told her husband that in the event she passed away before her husband, she would like him to create a silicone model of herself to keep him company, according to The Sun.
The lifelike model is dressed in Indrani’s favorite clothes and sits in her favorite spot on Sandilya’s living room couch.
The widower claims that his late wife got the idea from statues she saw in museums.
“It was then Indrani told me of her desire for a similar statue of her if she happened to pass away before me,” said Sandilya. “I just wanted to fulfill her wish.”
According to Sandilya, the model took about 6 months to make and weighs about 66 pounds.
Sandilya is not the only person to have recreated their spouse with a doll post-mortem.
