Mummy of Amenhotep the First


Mummy of Amenhotep the First
The king was originally buried at Dra-Abu'l Naga. During the Twenty-First Dynasty, his mummy, which was in poor condition, was moved to Deir el-Bahari.
The mummy was carefully wrapped in bandages and covered with a mask, which is still in place together with garlands of flowers.
...
An X-ray shows that the king apparently died in his late forties and was perhaps 1.79 meters, or about 5 feet 10 inches, tall.
The mummy's hands, although broken off, were crossed over his chest, a posture traditionally used by all of his successors.
