This seems to be one if not the best preserved and painted mummy since King Tut.Not having been opened yet, scans will be done to determine more about
this wonderful find.
Gender is assumed to be male and few details, so we may know soon.
The unidentified mummy, from the 30th pharaonic dynasty, was enclosed in a wooden sarcophagus and buried in sand at the bottom of a 20-foot shaft
when it was discovered recently by an Egyptian-led archaeological team.
"We have revealed what may be the most beautiful mummy ever found in Egypt," Zahi Hawass, chief of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, said as he
helped excavators remove the sarcophagus lid to show off the find.

Zahi Zawass[Council of Antiquities] says this is the most beautiful mummy ever found, not as ornate as others, but the painting seems like it was
done last month.
What a wonderful new find when we think Egypt cannot top all it has found, we have a new world treasure.
