Don Julián Santana - El Señor de las muñecas3

La Isla de las Muñecas, Xochimilco, México D.F. 1997

 

Isla de las Muñecas (Island of the Dolls): A man named Don Julian was haunted by the sounds of a local girl who had drowned near the island. He filled the island with dolls to protect it from the evil spirits. Don Julian has since died, but his nephew still runs the island. Even after Don Julian's passing, dolls are still placed there for protection.
