Why this is a
Masterpiece

So far, this is the best preserved mummy in the East.

History of the Object
It is the mummy of a woman. Her age was 40-45 years old. The height is 152 cm, but she must have been about 155 cm when she was alive. The weight is 10.7 kg, and the blood type is O. After scientific research it was established that she was of Kaukasian race. When the body was unearthed, she was lying with her face up and with stretched legs. The body was covered with a straw device. The whole body was wrapped with coarse cloth. There was a feather in the hat, and she was wearing shoes. The face, neck and body are all in a good state. The woman’s face is pretty with a high nose, deep-set eyes, long eyelashes and a pointed chin. She is dressed in a brown straight cloth divergent at the shoulders. Body hair, nails and eyelashes can be clearly seen. Therefore, she was given the beautiful name: "Loulan Beauty".
