An Egyptian expert has been called in to the State Archaeological Museum in India to restore a decaying mummy.

The embalmed body, lying in an airtight enclosure, is fragmenting at the face, shoulders and around the feet. The wrapping has started to peel and the cracks are very conspicuous at several places.

According to museum officials, the linen bandage of the mummy will be replaced. The experts will also replace the existing material stuffed inside the mummy with scientifically treated cotton foam.
