Preserved 'remains' of fairies, werewolves and other otherworldly creatures were supposedly discovered in an old house owned by mysterious 19th century collector.
The ghastly exhibit was supposedly the collection of a “Thomas Theodore Merrylin” – a supposedly “rich aristocrat and biologist in the 1800s".
Indeed, his collection features the skeletons of werewolves, vampires, aliens and winged fairies. These artifacts were supposedly discovered in the basement of his old house in London.
This gruesome collection features intricate framed skeletons as well as jars and cases of mythical creatures in gruesome poses.
Remains of fairies with their wings nailed to boards are put on display alongside the remains of strange aliens and human-like creatures.
The collection, looking like it comes straight from a horror film, also featured the sketches of infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper’s victims: Catherine Eddowes and Elizabeth Stride.
Supposed human hearts and other organs can be found preserved in jars.
A blog post about the alleged find claimed: "In 1960 in London at the time of clearing the site for construction of a new residential neighborhood, the old long-abandoned mansion belonged to Thomas Theodore Merrylin was set for demolition.

"In the basement of the home, builders have discovered several thousand small wooden boxes tightly sealed.
"Imagine their surprise when they began to find inside the bodies of strange mythical creatures, which seemed to have been living only in fairy tales."
Artist Alex CF, who ‘discovered’ this treasure trove of oddities, claimed that Merrylin’s diaries had written scientific notes and explanations of these specimens.
The diaries also say that "all sorts of advanced ideas that didn’t exist at the time, such as quantum physics and the multiverse theory."
However, as it turns out – the whole collection is simply an art piece by Alex CF, who also crafted the spooky narrative of this story. He also acts as the collection’s curator.
Still, the realistic skeleton art and its accompanying stories is a compelling enough reason for netizens to be fascinated by the work.
