The Mummy’s Face

image(from the linked article in Le Devoir)

We’re all a-buzz here at the Redpath Museum as our 3 mummies recently had their faces restored! Thanks to state-of-the art medical scanning technology, a team of anthropologists, engineers, and facial reconstruction artists were able to re-imagine what the mummies’ faces would have looked like. A full article explaining the process is linked below (in French). The reconstructed faces are on display in the Redpath Museum until mid-February.
