Description
Exhibitions

A group of men, women, and two children are standing around and peering into a case which appears to have a mummified body reclining inside. There are two other cases on the right and left in the background. All of the cases have what appear to be stuffed animals and figurines on top. Above the center case are three stuffed deer heads. There are also framed pictures on the walls above the cases. The image is in black, white, and gray.
