A Scan Reveals A 1,000 Year Old Mummified Monk Hidden In A Statue.

A statue of a sitting Buddha that made its way from a temple in China to a market in the Netherlands revealed an extraordinary secret: a 1,000-year-old mummified monk. The mummy was discovered, encased in a cavity in the statue, when a private buyer brought it to an expert for restoration. It’s unclear when or how the statue was removed from China.

Reserachers knew that there were remains dating back to the 11th or 12th Century in the statue, but it wasn’t until the CT scan that they discovered all of the monk’s organs had been removed.

Many practicing Buddists believe that mummies like that of Buddhist master Liuquan aren’t actually dead, but instead, they believe these monks are in an advanced state of meditation.
