The Field Museum selected nearly 20 ancient Peruvian and Egyptian mummies from its collection to travel the country in a stunning exhibition.  Featuring one of the largest collections of mummies in North America, Mummies: New Secrets from the Tombs lets you see how modern technology has revealed intricate details about the lives and customs of these ancient people.  I was challenged to produce seven illustrations in order to illuminate features and processes that would enhance visitors' understanding of the objects and artifacts they encountered in the exhibition.
