An exhibition at the Field Museum in Chicago features two ancient Egyptian mummies which have undergone recent CT scans and the latest 3D imaging.  Images of the Afterlife also displays how these two mummies would have looked like with the help of realistic sculptures based on the results.

Further details of the mummies being displayed - a woman in her 40s with curly hair, and a boy named Minirdis - can be found here on The Field Museum site which also features videos and images.

The exhibition runs until Sunday 9 June 2013.
