1000 year old Peruvian mummy

I have probably put this in the wrong place do we have a history category ?
I was struck by the beautiful hands of this possibly 1000 year mummy .


I’ve just looked at the picture,Muddy, how interesting, will read up on it now, thanks for posting.

@Muddy - Fascinating - and I agree, Muddy, the hands are beautiful.

Beautifully preserved. :smiley: :smiley:

Far too old, she’ll be 1016 by the time her kid leaves school.

Am I the only one to feel he died in dreadful fear, or pain?
The way the hands are holding his face, the legs curled in foetal position, the ropes . . .
Made me feel sad. Poor man.
