Riassunto: Dignified, reverent and scholarly, this unique collection brilliantly enhances our educational, scientific and cultural landscape, as mummification provides a window into the lives, history and cultures of every major region of the world. This exhibition catalogue, will Accompany the blockbuster exhibit Mummies of the World: The Dream of Eternal Life, the largest ever travelling exhibition of mummies and artefacts, which will include 70 human, animal and reptilian mummies gathered from the four corners of the world. This remarkable and compelling collection demonstrates the different processes of mummification and serves to educate readers as to their respective cultures. Included are ancient mummies and important artefacts from Asia, Oceania, South America and Europe, as well as ancient Egypt, and demonstrates how mummification can be a natural process; one which occurs in hot, dry desert sands, in eternal ice, in moors and bogs and even, amazingly, in dry cellars.
L'autore: ALFRIED WIECZOREK is Managing Director of the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen, Mannheim, Germany. WILFRIED ROSENDAHL is Curator at the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen in Mannheim, Germany, and a leading authority in the field of mummy research.
