A woman who was mummified 2,100 years ago still has soft skin.



A Chinese lady - who goes by the name Lady of Dai - was preserved many years ago, but the condition of her skin has baffled scientists, according to The Sun Online.

The mummy resides in her tomb at Mawangdui in Changsha, China, but still boasts soft skin, bendable arms and legs, she has managed to keep her internal organs intact and has her own Type-A blood.

And if that isn't remarkable enough, Lady of Dai has her own hair and eyelashes attached.

The Lady of Dai - who is also known as Xin Zhui - died of a heart attack at the age of 50 and was the wife of the Marquis of Dai.

Her tomb was discovered inside a hill in 1971 when workers were digging an air raid shelter, but it wasn't until recently she was found locked inside four layers of coffins at the Hunan Provincial Museum.

Meanwhile, experts have carried out an autopsy and have discovered she was overweight, suffered from back pain, has high blood pressure, clogged arteries, had liver disease, gall stones, diabetes and had a severely damaged heart, which have been associated with her lavish lifestyle as a Marquis.
