"...Orozco is the embalmer who provides minimum services at low cost for the low-income person. He does almost general things as Japanese morticians do like washing the body of the corpse, stuffing the cottons in nose and mouth, putting the clothes on, and doing make-up in the face. Froilan Orozco boldly cuts up a whole stomach, separates viscera from the body, washes cavity.After that puts viscera back into the body, cuts apart their bowel applying the formalin solution on it roughly, puts tatters in it and then, sews to close with kite string.
It doesn't have to be the medical instruments that Orozco uses. Usually they are not because the medical ones are expensive. Sometimes he cuts with scalpel (surgical knife), sometimes with butcher knife. When you think of which one is betther, butcher knife is more suitable and convinient.
Sometimes the way Orozco works seems kind of brutal, bu it is way based on his skillful career and there is no wasted motion. It's as elegant and beautiful as ceremony. Although the way Orozco with rugged face puts stocking on the legs of female body deftly and does delicate make-up seems even humorous, we can't help feeling the pride and the passion for what he does as an embalmer.
And now, as an old embalmer who is conscious of his death nearby, what he processes his work embalming bodies seems like almost "the priest", and reveals the prayer for the reality of bloody Colombia."http://orozcoelembalsamador.com/public_html/en/…
