Rough tranlsation of entire news item:
Excavations being carried out in the tom of Amenhotep-Huy (TT-28) near Asasif continue to produce new Pharaonic period discoveries. One of the most recent finds is an effigy of the god Osiris, shown facing to the front, painted on linen fabric. This is a mummy covering of the second century BC. Its beauty is remarkable for its polychrome colours and the blue color of the face of God, symbolizing the regeneration of the deceased after death.
