Yes, that is actually a real mummified body, sitting in an alcove, glass fronted display.

  1. The mummy does kinda steal the show in this, latest, posting. It is strangely beautiful, painting-like, reminding me of ‘the scream’, but with a life and richness brought out by the red background and the HDR. The juxtaposing of the energy brought about by the vivid HDR effect and the starkness (good title) of the subject is startling. A very exposing study of death.

    The other two pictures do pale in comparison although the photo of the dissection miniature model is much more eerie then earlier pic first of that model. The angle gives it a creepy quality.
