London, Feb 18 (IANS): Welcome to the “The Mummy” part IV. The only difference is that that here, you get a chance to mummify your body, or your near and dear ones, via ancient Egyptian burial rites!

Summum, an Utah-based company in the US, is offering the 21st century version of the ancient Egyptian burial rites that preserve bodies after death.

Billed as the world’s only company to offer mummification services, it has appealed those who believe in life after death or want to preserve their loved ones.

The company also offers the services for pets, along with humans.

How does it do this?

The process involved washing the dead body as a symbol of purification with wine and water from the River Nile.

The organs are taken out and cleansed, then the body is hydrated for more than 70 days in a tank full of chemicals.

The modern-day process takes 90 days, said a Daily Mail report.

At Summum, dogs, cats, peacocks, finches and even rats have undergone the traditional Egyptian burial routine.

For centuries, ancient Egyptians mummified pharaohs to preserve their bodies and give them safe passage, as they believed, to the afterlife.
