they are ugly and awfully well done. I found them a while ago while looking for some info about dolfies. I visited the site with very Polish name “Kostnice” (Morgues) but I had no idea that there is many artists in Japan who make necro nymphs.
the main inspiration are the coffin portraits of the dead children which were popular in 19th century.
