Is Jeremy Bentham scarless?

Is it me or does Jeremy Bentham's body show no scar? Throughout 5 season we'v always seen John Locke's eye scar, but when he's in the coffin, nada.
Is it intentional or did the mortuary artists master their craft?

It is difficult to see but i think the scar is there. As time has gone on, Locke's scar isnt as pronounced.

Re: Is Jeremy Bentham scarless?

Actually-I suspect that isn't his real head. Just a wax replica. And Wikipedia backs me up:

As requested in his will, his body was preserved and stored in a wooden cabinet, termed his "Auto-icon". Originally kept by his disciple Dr. Southwood Smith,[13] it was acquired by University College London in 1850. The Auto-icon is kept on public display at the end of the South Cloisters in the main building of the College. For the 100th and 150th anniversaries of the college, the Auto-icon was brought to the meeting of the College Council, where he was listed as "present but not voting".[14] Tradition holds that if the council's vote on any motion is tied, the auto-icon always breaks the tie by voting in favour of the motion.
The Auto-icon has always had a wax head, as Bentham's head was badly damaged in the preservation process. The real head was displayed in the same case for many years, but became the target of repeated student pranks including being stolen on more than one occasion. It is now locked away securely.




LOL
