Pasqual Pinon. A sideshow promoter noticed that Pasqual suffered from a large benign tumor on the top of his head. The promoter convinced Pasqual to join the freak show circus and had a fake face made of wax placed on Pasqual’s tumor. (There are some reports that the fake face was made of silver, which was surgically placed under the skin of the tumor.) Year later, the manager of the circus paid for the operation to have the tumor removed, and Pasqual moved back to Texas.
Skull of a woman with a condition called monocephalus diprosopus. This is a form of conjoined twinning characterized by a single head and two faces or a spectrum of duplication of the craniofacial structures. From the Museum of Anatomy in Montpellier, France.
