Photographer's Note

I do hope you don't find this picture too disturbing...

San Pedro de Atacama is a small oasis in the north of Chile surrounded by the extremely dry Atacama desert (in some areas there is no record of rain!)

The picture was taken in the fascinating archeological museum. There are several mummies in the museum all are thousands of years old and in excellent condition.
It is astonishing that the skin and hair is very well preserved. The mummy in the picture has a very special hair style.
