“If you have always wanted to know more about Egyptian mummies and what goes into the process of mummifying, then the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) is the place to head to. The museum will play host to a unique exhibition — ‘Mummy: The Inside Story’ — from today.
The exhibition will take visitors on an enchanting 3D exhibition into the coffins of Nesperennub, a priest who lived and died in Egypt nearly 3,000 years ago.
Non-invasive and cutting-edge technology such as x-raying, CT scans and advanced computer technology will also be integral to the exhibition, and will take visitors through a ‘virtual unwrap’.
The 3D journey that combines dramatic reconstruction of the priest’s life and mummification in ancient Egypt will also be showcased using forensic methods. To add more value, the exhibition is also designed with a five-minute pre-show film, giving context to his historical and social background” – via DNA India.
