WHOA! There’s a Corpse (Mummy) Inside A Buddha Sculpture!
At first glance, this 1,000-year-old Buddha sculpture from the Netherlands looks very normal. Just like any other typical Buddha sculptures, this one is sitting on a calm meditation pose.
But when a CT scan was taken, a shocking revelation unfolds. The scan revealed that a mummy was hidden inside of it. The mummy, just like the pose of the Buddha, is sitting on a meditation pose.
According to the experts who conducted the tests and scans of the Buddha, the remains of a mummified monk encased inside is in position of meditation and said to be in immaculate condition. They also found out that the body belonged to Buddhist master Liuquan of the Chinese Meditation School.
What’s more interesting with these already shocking findings is that, the Buddha also contains “paper scraps that are printed with ancient Chinese characters.” As of this date, there is still no public news or announcement what the Chinese characters says.
