The 2,200-year-old mummified body of a Chinese noblewoman known as Xin Zhui, or The Lady of Dai, is an anomaly. When her body was discovered, it was so incredibly well preserved that it equalled that of someone recently deceased.
Interesting situation, and I wonder if there’s been any DNA testing to see anything about her heritage, and things.
Are all those wrinkles due to being submerged In liquid for so many years? Are they due to the dissolution of fat under her skin, as you say she was obese. What happened to her eyes. I cannot see them well in the picture.
Fine writer and reader of Substack—we are starting a movement to get a poetry section added to the platform. Can I ask, are you with us?
