P.T. Barnum’s second wife, Nancy Fish, donated Pa-Ib, a 4000-year-old Egyptian mummy, to the museum on August 15, 1894. We recently received over 200 high-resolution images of Pa-Ib and the sarcophagus, which were taken by the folks over at Yale. It is amazing to see, in great detail, all the different features and elements of the mummy.
My job was to go through these 200 images and pick out about 30 that summarized the entire experience as a whole. After numerous painstaking hours (total exaggeration), we picked the best 32 photos that we believed represented Pa-Ib and her journey. Here is one of my favorite photos of Pa-Ib.
