The dynastic Egyptians mummified and encased their emperors in tombs of gold beneath the Pyramids in Egypt. These tombs were often filled with splendor and riches, as this ancient culture believed that these objects travelled with their dead kings into the afterlife. In the early 1920's, English archaeologists were eager to remove these samples of ancient culture to be displayed in the Royal Museum in London England. However, these unfortunate gentlemen dared the Egypytians in one unforgiveable way, by defying the 'Mummy's Curse'. This curse was supposedly placed on these artifacts by the ancient Egyptians in order to preserve the remains of their dead ancestors. While returning to England, the ship carrying the last of the mummified corpses was overrun with rats, and crashed on the rocks around the Cape of Good Hope. The mummified remains of this hand were the only remains of the wreckage, washing up on the shore several weeks later.
Our own brand of mummy limbs are made using latex rubber, poly-urethane foam, and real animal bone.
