Xin Zhui, Lady of Dai, Nobody knows why this ancient mummy is so well preserved.
Xin Zhui (Chinese: 辛追, died 163 BC), also known as Lady Dai or Marquise of Dai, was the wife of Li Cang (利蒼), the Marquis of Dai, during the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). She gained fame more than 2,000 years after her death, when her tomb was discovered inside a hill known as Mawangdui, in Changsha, Hunan, China. After opening the tomb, workers discovered her exceptionally preserved remains alongside hundreds of valuable artifacts and documents. Her body and belongings are currently under the care of the Hunan Provincial Museum, which has allowed occasional international exhibits. (Wikipedia)

Mummy Juanita, also known as the Inca Ice Maiden and Lady of Ampato, is the well-preserved frozen body of an Inca girl who was killed as an offering to the Inca gods sometime between 1450 and 1480 when she was approximately 11–15 years old. She was discovered on Mount Ampato (part of the Andes cordillera) in southern Peru in 1995 by anthropologist Johan Reinhard and his Peruvian climbing partner, Miguel Zárate. "Juanita" has been on display in Catholic University of Santa María's Museum of Andean Sanctuaries (Museo Santuarios Andinos) in Arequipa, Peru, almost continuously since 1996, and was displayed on a tour of Japan in 1999.

Mummy Juanita - Arequipa, Peru Around 500 years ago, at the tender age of just 12 or 13, Juanita was - so it's thought - taken up 6310m Nevado Ampato and sacrificed to appease the mountain. Dubbed the Ice Maiden, Juanita was near-perfectly preserved by the high altitude and freezing temperatures. Now living at a lower altitude in Arequipa's Museo Santury, her muscles, stomach contents, even her once-fine clothes have provided a great, if ghoulish, insight into Inca life. (telegraph.co.uk)
