Biography Edit

The 18th century Hungarian mummy of Michael Orlovits is displayed with the mummy of his wife Veronica Orlovits and their son Johannes (born 1800) during the media preview for the world premiere of the Mummies of the World exhibition, June 30, 2010 at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

MummificationEdit

The mummification process happened thanks to the favorable microclimate inside the crypt, including low temperatures and relatively constant humidity and air pressure.  Wood chips placed under the bodies in the coffins absorbed fluids, so instead of decomposing, the bodies gradually dried out - preserving them in an astonishingly lifelike state.
