The patients lost directly or minutes to hours after death 21 grams weight. This minimal research shows that the soul has a substantial weight. The concept of 21 grams has a mysterious imagination that is attractive to artists. The weight of 21 grams is both imaginative and literally for jewellery makers a challenge.
