A child resting in the women’s corridor. The amazing preservation of this case is due to a specific embalming process, of which the details are still unknown. Note the use of artificial eyes. Child mummy from the Palermo Catacombs.
Are natural cemeteries the new way to be buried? Natural burials forgo the embalming process and use green materials to cover the body, ones that don’t impede natural decomposition or harm the environment.
Anubis was originally an Egyptian god of the underworld, but became associated specifically with the embalming process and funeral rites. I really like the robotic design of this character as it moves away from most other conventions.
Eye caps are used during the embalming process, after death, the eyes can shrink and cause a hollow look. The eye cap is placed over the eye and then the lid is closed over them. Usually, but not always, a glue is used to keep the eyelid closed.
