Salvador Dalí Reburied After Exhumation For Paternity Tests

Three decades after he died and eight months after his remains were disinterred in order to settle a paternity claim to determine whether Dalí was the father of Pilar Abel, a tarot card reader and fortune teller, Salvador’s body has once again been laid to rest, in its entirety, beneath the museum he designed as a shrine to his own life and art.

The surrealist’s body was exhumed from its tomb in Figueres, Catalonia, in July. Hair, nail and bone samples taken from the body proved he was not her father. The exhumation did, however, reveal that the artist’s trademark moustache was still intact.
