Lys Chelys, French Female Fakir

Modern performers like David Blaine, who entomb themselves in glass boxes, are carrying on an old tradition, as seen below in the first video with Lys Chelys.

The still photo shows her exiting her "sarcophage" after 57 days without eating.

After her items, we have a full movie utilizing the same theme.

Reminds me of a girl named Joanie Greggans, who ran a morning TV exercise show during the mid 1980s, appearing later touting the "breatharian" philosophy and claiming that she didn't eat a thing. She said she lived on air alone and was selling all sorts of non-sense stuff. I'd look at that and think, "Yeah, and I'm going to be the first Protestant Pope!"
