Dalí’s mous­tache per­fectly pre­served

The Guardian Weekly - - World Roundup -

4 Ex­perts who ex­humed the body of Sal­vador Dalí to col­lect sam­ples for use in a pa­ter­nity claim have re­vealed that the artist’s trade­mark mous­tache still graces his face al­most three decades af­ter he died.

Nar­cís Bardalet, the em­balmer who tended Dalí’s body af­ter his death in 1989 and helped with the ex­huma­tion, said he had been de­lighted to see the sur­re­al­ist’s best-known fea­ture once again.

Dalí’s re­mains were dis­in­terred to help set­tle a long-run­ning pa­ter­nity claim from a 61-year-old for­tuneteller who in­sists she is his only child.
