I believe La Pacualita might be a combination of two of the theories- the idea that she is a corpse, and the idea that she is one of Pierre Imans mannequins.
Pierre Imans fashioned hands and a face for St. Bernadette de Lourdes corpse by placing a coating of wax over them. Why could he not do the same for Pascuala’s daughter? Her hands, head, and legs? Then carefully colour and sculpt; replacing her eyes with the glass ones, her eyelashes as well. As morbid as it would be, I believe it might be possible.
