The face of an unknown dead woman inspired an entire generation of culture in early 20th-century Paris. According to legend, after the drowned woman’s body was pulled from the Seine River, a man at the morgue found her so beautiful that he had her death mask created. Known as the Stranger of the Seine, it was later reproduced so many times that it became a fixture of Paris Bohemian society. Source Source 2
