BiographyEdit

Unfortunately we do not know much about Ling Huiping, just that her tomb was discovered along with Lady Dai's (Xin Zhui) tomb and the tomb of Sui Xiaoyuan.[1] As said in the article "Top 10 famous mummified bodies", the tomb of Ling Huiping was found in 1971 by workers in china, near the city of Changsha.[1] She is presumed to be a 2,000 year old mummy since she was found with Lady Dai. [1]

MummificationEdit

As far as the mummification of Ling Huiping goes, we do not known much other that it was stated in, "Top 10 famous mummified bodies" that her body was found in a similar mummified state as Lady Dai's[1]. It is said in the article "The enduring mystery of The Lady of Dai mummy" written by April Holloway[2], that how Lady Dai came to be mummified is unknown, but that "her skin was still moist and elastic, her joints still flexible, every feature still remained intact down to her eyelashes and the hair in her nostrils, and blood still remained in her veins."(Holloway, paragraph 4).[2]
