Caption

Egyptian mummy. Upper body of an embalmed (mummified), preserved body, which lived between 5000 and 2500 years ago. After death the ancient Egyptians immersed the body in bicarbonate of soda, injected the arteries with balsams, and removed the contents of the torso, replacing them with bituminous and aromatic substances. Finally the body was wrapped in cloth. This process was thought to give the soul immortality.
