The exhibition Mummies of the World began with a mysterious and rare find of 20 human mummies hidden in the basement of the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums in Mannheim, Germany in 2004. The mummies, which once belonged to artist Gabriel von Max (1840–1915) were thought to have been destroyed or lost during World War II. This startling discovery prompted the most important research project ever undertaken with regard to mummies. Without documentation explaining who they were, where they were from or why they were collected, an international team of scientists from many disciplines studied the mummies. Their studies and research, known as the German Mummy Project, is the largest mummy research project in the world. The results of their research and studies are presented in the Mummies of the World exhibition, made possible through the collaboration of 21 world-renowned museums, organizations and collections from seven countries, and is currently on show in LA.
