Preserved body of Ming Dynasty female discovered in Jiangsu Taizhou, eyelashes, etc. clearly discernible
2011 March 1st, the preserved body of a Ming Dynasty female was discovered in Taizhou city of Jiangsu province. This female body was wrapped in a shroud, blanket, and clothes nearly completely submerged in a yellow-brownish coffin liquid. The body was rigid, her skin intact, her facial features, hair, eyelashes, etc. all clearly discernible, with her body measuring around 1.5 meters long.
Comments from NetEase:
She’s been dead for hundreds of years, and was lying there just fine, but you guys insist on digging the dead person out! May you all die without sons! What more, you put them out in the open air, which means their bodies will quickly go bad! Do you guys know what you are doing? Where are her descendants?!
A group of idiots. A perfectly fine cultural relic ruined like this, and they even show it off? An embarrassment!!!
This is truly a bunch of robbers!!!
Go ahead and dig [excavate], just wait until your descendants go and dig up the graves of you “archeologists” many years from now and put your remains in a museum for the people of the future to look at.
A mistake, a mistake, people these days. We shouldn’t disturb the dead. May Buddha preserve us…may Buddha preserve us…
In the future, whether we have money or not, it will be better to be buried as ordinarily/commonly [inconspicuously] as possible, and not like this.
Are you serious!!!
Opening these ancient coffins in this kind of environment?
Not the least bit professional, truly wasted/ruined!
These bastards are so disrespectful to ancestors!!
Actually this is simply digging up other people’s ancestral graves, this is the what is most wrong about it! [They] will definitely suffer retribution/consequences, just wait!!!
This is archeological excavation? It is clearly ruining [of archeological artifacts]! This kind of “cultural relic preservation” is worst than simply letting them continue lying in the ground. The kind of so-called archeologists in China are simply a bunch of idiots. So Sad.
Starting from why cremation is promoted these days,
Because people these days (whether public or private individuals),
they all like to dig up graves!
several hundreds of years later,
[and] violates your remains.
As you right now,
how do you feel?
China’s tradition is to respect one’s ancestors,
but what about now?
On one side calling for the recovery/revival of traditions,
[but] on the other side digging up our ancestors’ graves!
it’s better to be cremated!
What do you think? How do you feel about excavating historical graves? Is historical research more important, or respecting the dead?
