Preserved plaster casts of bodies of Pompeii inhabitants

Preserved plaster casts of the bodies of Pompeii inhabitants. To this day, we can admire the remains of Pompeii inhabitants buried alive. And this is due to the brilliant method of Giuseppe Fiorelli.

Giuseppe Fiorelli developed a method of making plaster casts of bodies. Through a small hole he poured stucco plaster, which filled the entire empty space. After the plaster had set, it removed the ash layer, revealing the castings of bodies, objects, building elements, etc.
