Melbourne Museum Exhibition

"The exhibition Mummies: Ancient Egypt and the Afterlife will run at the Melbourne Museum in Carlton from Friday week to October 2. Keku and her elaborately inscribed coffins form the centrepiece of the exhibition, which will include mummified human heads, hands and feet, animal mummies and six different sarcophagi. Spells, amulets and ancient linen bandages collected from tombs also feature". See the article for more details and a photograph of the lovely mummy of Keku.
More on the exhibition and a rather better photograph are at:
