Warning: Graphic images

This young woman has honoured her mother's dying wish to be in her graduation photo by taking snaps alongside her mom's open coffin.

University student Jia Huan from Kota Bharu in Malaysia shared photos on Facebook, which have since gone viral.

Her mother's dying wish was to appear in her graduation photo and she'd been looking forward to Jia's ceremony at Tunku Abdul Rahman University (UTAR) in August, according to local media.  

Unfortunately she passed away a month before it took place.

The unnamed mother's funeral was held on July 14, and Jia and her family decided to honour her last wish by setting up a graduation shoot next to her open coffin.

"We did a graduation shoot 33 days before the actual ceremony," Jia wrote on social media.

"You said beforehand that everyone would look good on the day if the whole family wore blue. Today, we did just that."

The student even dressed her mother's corpse in blue for the photo opportunity.

"I'm not wearing UTAR's official graduation gown, but we'll settle for this [unofficial gown].

"Mum, your eldest child has graduated. She graduated 33 days early," she said.
