Please see the face of 5000 years old man buried and preserved under ice.
5,000 years later, the ice man gets a face
He’s not exactly Cary Grant, but let’s give the guy a break. During his lifetime – he lived to 45 or 46 – Oetzi faced a world that was nasty and brutish. Whoever he was, Otezi died a violent death. A flint arrowhead had penetrated his skin and researchers say that the arrow cut a major blood vessel in the man’s left arm. That led to heavy bleeding and possibly paralysis of the arm. The body also showed evidence of a deep hand wound as well as several abrasions and bruises.
When the mummified remains were discovered, the body was in relatively good shape – it had been preserved under ice for all that time – except for the face. The reconstruction work by a couple of Dutch artists made use of 3-D and forensics technology to carry out the project gives Oetzi an identity after all these years.
