Dalí’s moustache perfectly preserved
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.
