Mummified Monk Found Inside Statue

A mummified monk has been found inside an ancient Chinese statue of Buddha. Originally displayed at the Drents Museum in the Netherlands, the statue underwent a CT scan, and it's believed that the mummy is Liuquan, a Buddhist master of the Chinese Meditation School, who died around 1100 AD. It's thought that Liuquan underwent a bizarre years-long process of "self-mummification," involving meditation, starvation, and dehydration. More at USA Today and Mail Online.
