Swift and Stella – A Modern Post-Mortem

We’re delighted to be a part of this exciting project coordinated by Dr René Gapert to see what Jonathan Swift and his friend Esther Johnson, ‘Stella’, really looked like 300 years ago. After examining Swift’s skull cast and death masks and Stella’s skull cast René and the team were able to create these amazing facial reconstructions.

Here’s a video of the process leading to the final results! [fbvideo link=”https://www.facebook.com/swiftstellapostmortem/videos/1175027089299341/”]
