Mariemont: The return of the mummy!

The coffin and the mummy of Hor are back in Hainaut!

This exceptional piece, a sarcophagus (stone coffin containing the dead body) dating back from the 7th century, is visible at the Mariemont Royal Museum.

Thanks for almost intact polychromy, you will be able to gaze at a face dating back to more than 2500 years ago.
