    Some facial moisturiser wouldn’t go astray…
    It is amazing though how so called ancient burial methods were so long lasting. Incredible the things they achieved all those centuries ago

      It really is! They were certainly ahead of their time. 😀

    I’m sorry but it looks like a slug of some sort is coming out if his nose. Freakin me out to be honest. Eeeww…lol

      It’s actually the material they used to embalm with. They would soak the material in some kind of liquid and then shove it in your nose, mouth and probably other holes we shouldn’t talk about on a family oriented blog. ROFLMAO!

        oh well thanks….I’m eating and I should not have read that NOW! LMAO

    Amazing! Her features are so exquisite.

    • November 2, 2009 4:58 PM

      I was amazed at her teeth and her eyelids being in such good shape.

  9. November 2, 2009 12:53 PM

    Makes me wonder what she was like and how she looked, back in the day! 🙂

    • November 2, 2009 5:11 PM

      I know….wouldn’t it be cool to go back in time and see her when she was alive. Should we tell her what happens to her 4000 years later or just keep it to ourselves? LOL

    I want to know her history..who she was..what was her name? etc etc..She may not have thought in her weirdest dreams when she was alive offcourse that she would be preserved in this world after being dead for 4000 years..and people commenting on her looks ! lol 🙂

    • November 3, 2009 9:16 AM

      I wondered the same things while I was viewing her Tasneem. I bet she never thought she would have people staring at her all day 4000 years later. LOL
