embalm wrapping

Storyboard Text

  • First, his body is taken to the tent known as 'ibu' or the 'place of purification'. There the embalmers wash his body with good-smelling palm wine and rinse it with water from the Nile.
  • The body is now covered and stuffed with natron which will dry it out. All of the fluids, and rags from the embalming process will be saved and buried along with the body.
  • The dehydrated internal organs are wrapped in linen and returned to the body. The body is stuffed with dry materials such as sawdust, leaves and linen so that it looks lifelike.
  • First the head and neck are wrapped with strips of fine linen. Then the fingers and the toes are individually wrapped.
  • The arms and legs are wrapped separately. Between the layers of wrapping, the embalmers place amulets to protect the body in its journey through the underworld
  • A cloth is wrapped around the body and a picture of the god Osiris is painted on its surface.
