Reconstruction of the Mummy of Pum 1

Here we have the mummy known as Pum 1 (Pennsylvania University mummy 1), the mummy was autopsied back in 1972 and from the picture the mummy appears to be in good shape. However in reality the mummy from the waist up is in many pieces and overdue for some attention and cleaning.

The article is from the Penn Museum's blog "In the Artifacts lab" which shows the condition of their mummy and the restoration work given to the preservation and cleaning of the Pum 1. Today the mummy is looking good but sadly without the mummy's real name it is just a nameless shell.
