The Mummiform


Does this look like the mummiforms found in ancient Egypt?

It's not! This Summum mummiform is called the "Egyptian". It is a modern mummiform. Down the front of the mummiform are pictures of a phoenix, Ra, a scarab, and Maat. There is an ankh and tetube in its hands. The headdress is decorated with 24K gold. And there are over two thousand sculpted feathers on its back.

Some people like to have their mummiforms designed by an artist. Some like to decorate them with metals, jewels and other things they think are special.

There are even mummiforms as unique as your face! A "life mask" is made by making a mask of your face. The mask is put on to the mummiform. Then people can look just like your mummy!
