Oetzi the Iceman gets a new face
Published on February 23rd, 2011 | by Admin1
Indeed, recent research has shown the Iceman, now approaching the tender age of 5,300 years, did not have blue eyes as previously believed.
The Kennis model was created based on three-dimensional images of the mummy’s skeleton as well as the latest forensic technology, and will go on display on March 1 until January 15, 2012.
The Bolzano museum is also planning to improve conservation of the mummy by using pure nitrogen, which should help it keep its relatively young appearance by eliminating oxidation.
