Did A Brazilian Man Surgically Attach A Real Dog’s Face on Himself, or is it a Hoax?
The shocking case of a Brazilian man who sew a dog’s face on his own, in an attempt to become the Dogman has recently caused a stir on the internet. The man allegedly had plastic surgery to sew the mouth, nose, ears, facial hair and other parts from a dead dog’s head onto his own face. Is it real, or is this shocking case a hoax? Find out right here.
The story: a man from Brazil paid a whole lot of money out of his own pockets to have the snout, eyebrows and ears from a dead dog, surgically attached to his face. The man now wants to be referred to as man-dog.
Is this for real? Or is it a hoax?
Well, if it had been real, it would’ve been truly shocking. Luckily, a few days after the extremely bizarre news surfaced and pretty much grossed anyone out, it was all announced as a hoax. What you see in the shocking pictures, is the odd work of Brazilian performance artist Rodrigo Braga. The artist asked a veterinary surgeon to sew the dog’s face parts on his own face.
The twist is that we don’t see his face in the pictures; we see a replica of the artist’s face. Of course, the pictures are also edited with a computer software, but the dog body parts are real. The dog had been previously put to sleep due to the fact that he could not be put into a home. The animal’s body was used with the permission of the local authorities.
Rodrigo Braga is absolutely fascinated with the beauty of dogs, so fascinated, that he took his passion to a shocking limit: he decided to turn to plastic surgery in order to look like a dog. The entire creepy experiment was done back in 2004, but the pictures have surfaced just now.
Braga went on the record to say that he had nothing to do with the decision to euthanize the poor dog. The local animal shelter put him down because no one had adopted him beyond the legal limit. Call this form of ‘art’ bizarre, scary and shocking… but many have praised him for his work. He declared that he was inspired by his interactions with a sick dog back in his teen days. What do you think about this shocking form of art?
