‘Necropants’ Made from Dead Man’s Skin are Being Displayed in Iceland Museum

Necropants made from a dead man’s skin dating back to the 17th century are currently being displayed in Iceland.

The clothing can be found at the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft in the European country’s Holmavik village.

Both ancient civilizations and modern societies employed various crafts to attract good luck, wealth, and prosperity, whether it manifests in the form of tool creation or engaging in activities.

Still, Iceland’s Medieval pants are one of the most bizarre ingenuities in relation to a country’s tradition.

While the attire can be a costume this Halloween, the world’s remaining pair of necropants is not for sale.

The pants were traditionally made from the leg skin of a dead person. In the past, the human skin garment was previously thought to bring its wearer good luck.

Anna Bjorg Porarinsdottir, who runs the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft, told Newsweek that the necropants on display in the Iceland museum is only a replica from a mold made from a man.
