In our culture we are so insulated against death.Back then those people were exposed to it from an early age;people died in their homes & were laid out there until the funeral.The child mortality rates were very high;as a mom I can understand wanting a memento of a child especially if it's the only one you will ever have. After all a mother carries that child in her body,labors to give birth and in those days women put their lives on the line to have babies and they probably tended that child in it`s last illness. I read that the photos with the eyes appearing to be open were painted that way by the photographer.I think people in those days knew how to grieve.In this culture people are expected to "move on" and forget their dead loved ones too soon--we are not allowed to mourn because it`s a reminder of our own mortality.
