Arrived at the British Museum in 1835 in a woman's coffin, wearing a pink skirt and appeared to have breasts. For decades, experts described the mummy as a "dancing woman." Although the embalmer drawn a beard on the mummy's face which was later X-rayed and CT scanned to confirm that it was indeed a adult male body. Padding was added to the thighs and chest to most likely recreate an accurate appearance of the person, which was a fat man.
Mummy was wrapped with a leather belt, linen straps on body, short skirt or kilt - was once pink - and was in a wooden coffin marked with a women's name "Mutemmenu." Arms, legs, fingers, and toes were separately wrapped rather than the whole body being cocooned in a material. Was carefully treated because it was from a high status family. There is a gold leaf on the body which was believed in the ancient Egyptian times that gods has golden skin so it may have been to make the dead person god-like.
