The mummy of a man is exposed 04 July 2007 at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. From 06 July to 01 October 2007, the museum presents the show "Under the Sign of the Golden Griffin. The Royal Tombs of the Scythians". The Scythians and the nomadic peoples related to them were the dominant historical force on the Eurasian steppes of the 8th to 3rd cent. BC. The exhibition presents the history of these horsemen and their culture, from their early ranges along the Yenisei River up to the very doorstep of Central Europe. A spotlight is turned on the far-ranging relationship already existing between Asia and Europe long before the famous Silk Road ever came into existence

They also found this one from an Iranian saltmine:

Mythical satyr may be preserved in salt

That is impressive, Crimson. How is it that his hair has remained after so many thousands of years?
Reminds me of this mummy from the Canary Islands.

The tattoo itself is 'marvelous' and more creative/detailed/aesthetically pleasing than 99% of what you see on typical idiots these days.
