La cara de la momia “desempaquetada” con CT ayudaría al detective del homicidio

por Lynn Shapiro, Writer | June 24, 2009

Michael Brassell, who works with the Department of Justice/Maryland State Police Missing Persons Unit, used his skills as a trained sketch artist to produce a second, more traditional reconstruction.

"The project was no different then any of the postmortems drawings I have worked on for cold case homicides. The CT scans were very clear, making my job easy," he said. "If this was a homicide case, I would almost go as far to guarantee a hit on the profile drawing."

Meresamun lived in Thebes (ancient Luxor) about 800 B.C. and died of undetermined causes about age 29-30. An exhibit, "The Life of Meresamun: A Temple Singer in Ancient Egypt," features her mummy and coffin and will be featured through Dec. 6 at the Oriental Institute Museum. A video display allows visitors to view features of Meresamun's physical state and perform a "virtual unwrapping" of the mummy, enabling them to see how it was prepared.

She was tall by ancient standards--5-and-a-half feet--her features were regular with wide-spaced eyes and she had an overbite. "Meresamun was, until the time of her death, a very healthy woman," Vannier said. "The lack of arrest lines on her bones indicates good nutrition through her lifetime and her well-mineralized bones suggest that she lived an active lifestyle."
