This mummy (male, about 3000 years old) once had been exposed full body in its sarcophagus (and in a glass box) in the Musee de l'Amerique Francaise in Quebec City, Canada.

As far as I've heard, one of the visitors, a lady, complained about the fact that the mummy's little *harrumph* was clearly visible and that she took this as an offence. ;-) So nowadays one can only see the face and the upper half of the body.

Thought I'd share it with those who are interested. Not sure if I should have declared it "nudity" ??
