For when a photograph is not enough, the Sequeiras -- a third-generation family of religious effigy makers -- operate a successful sideline to bereaved relatives who want a three-dimensional tribute to their lost loved ones. Using old photographs to capture a likeness, the statues and busts are made of wood or fibreglass, coloured with paint and completed with realistic glass eyes.
