3/11/2012 Patrick Narrates Film Opening Mummy Exhibit at VA Museum of Fine Arts

Featuring more than 100 objects from the internationally renowned Egyptian collection of the British Museum, Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb exhibit opens with a 3-D film, narrated by Patrick Stewart, which shows the virtual unwrapping of Nesperennubís mummy, a temple priest who lived 3,000 years ago, using the most advanced scanning technology currently available. Peering beneath the linen wrapping, visitors will see how this temple priest may have looked and lived. These vivid details provide insight into the process of mummification as well as life expectancy, health, and disease in ancient Egypt. The exhibit is now open @ Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond and runs until March 11, 2012. Details and Tickets
