This mummy comes with a face that is interwoven strips of linen that make up the concentric square design over the mummy’s face. The body is allegedly remarkably well-preserved. According to the Louvre, x-rays revealed that the mummy was an adult male that lived in the Ptolemaic Period (305 BC to 30 BC). The museum researchers are not sure of the man’s name, but they believe it is either Pachery or Nenu. The question here is, this seems to be the only mummy today which comes with this square face design. Why did he want his face to be interwoven by squares?
