Second skin, Blister Ampules??? In MY day we put straight methylated spirits onto the raw blisters on our toes, four days a week, uphill BOTH ways in the snow. If the blister hadn't already been rubbed raw by our padded pointe shoes, we popped the blister and then applied methylated spirits. Anyone who managed to bleed through their point shoes by the end of class got bonus points, but alack, I never did.
I don't think that reverance or respect for the dead needs the dead to be hidden from sight completely. It is the attitude that you bring, as a witness to a dead body, that matters, not the display and witnessing of a dead body, per se.
