Child Mummy Open And Close Her Eyes
Roslaiea's mummified body can now be found on Capuchin Catacombs under Sicily’s Capuchin Convent. Rosalia is best knoiwn for being one of the world’s best preserved mummies. But that's not only what she's known for. It was said that everyday she appears to move her eyelids to reveal the bright blue eyes beneath.
“While most of the mummies buried in the catacombs were treated by the monks and basically desiccated by the dry environment, Rosalia was mummified artificially, In 2009 Piombino-Mascali found a handwritten manuscript in which Salafia listed the ingredients used to mummify Rosalia. The formula read: ‘one part glycerin, one part formalin saturated with both zinc sulfate and chloride, and one part of an alcohol solution saturated with salicylic acid” - Rossella Lorenzi
