3/3 ONE OF BRAZILS MOST WELL KNOWN MEDIUMS – SENORA PRADO – PHOTOGRAPHED AND OBSERVED THROUGH 1921
Taken in Rio de Janeiro in the house of the Prados early 1921. From left to right: 1) Srta. Antonina Prado (automatic writing medium), 2) Eurípedes Prado; 3) Sra. Prado
(the main medium); 4) Stra. Alice Prado; 5) Erastóstenes Prado.
The teacher Ettore Bosio stayed one year at the house of the Prados to document the occurring phenomena through photographic means, all displayed below
“Joao” was called in his last incarnation Felismino de Carvalho and was a rebel fighting against the oligarchic brazilian government until he died in 1900. He was the uncle of the médium and had a good-tempered character before he became the spirit control of Senora Prado.
After Joao went back into the cabinet a female spirit appears in front of the 70 sitters. “Anita” claimed she was a florist in her time on earth. She is responsible for the many perfect parafin-“gloves” of different flowers
Could “João” have opened the machine and impressed the plate? Asking this while communicating with Joao through means of table tipping the alphaabet, the spirit answered: I want to know your opinion on mine first photographic work! So this photograph was allegedly been produced through paranormal manipulation of the plate.
In this photograph the spirit shows itself outside the experimental control cage for proof-issues. The entity allegedly identified itself as Manoel Barbosa Rodrigues – a deceased regular sitter of the seances in the Prado-house.
The materialised spirit of the deceased child of a female sitter, taken inside of the cabinet, that now shows itself as a adult, and shows facial features of itself how he looked like before he was dying
One photo made while the dematerialisation-experiments of the 16th of January 1921. Despite the photo should show the medium in its chair (see upcoming photo), the camera took the spirit-body of the immediately dematerialised medium
Photo taken in another phase of the De-Materialisation-experiment 8:30 in the morning of 16th of January 1921. The mediums body has vanished to a large extent. Only some transparent shades can be seen.
Photograph of 23 of March, 9 a.m.. To obtain this picture of the more fully materialised spirit “Joao”, Bosio writes, many accounts were being made. Finally Joao presented himself as showed in the photograph.
Photograph taken at 3o’clock of the afternoon of the 25th of March 1921 by Bosio. The body of the materialising ghost is by now all transparent. In the sessions it gave the name of “Evangelista”. Its luminous shades fan out in all directions.
