Lost art of mummification being revived in Brooklyn

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I don’t have any pets that I would want to mummify. I only have a bearded dragon and fish, and I don’t think they would mummify particularly well. Nor do I want to be mummified when I die.  But you need to check out the profile of Sorceress Cagliastro that accompanies the video.  There is something so likable about this story, and the woman performing the mummification services.

Maybe it is that Ms. Cagliastro  is so passionate about what she does? Maybe it is that her dress, nails and hair are so unique and dark, but yet that is never an issue in the story? Or maybe it is just that she has a similar accent to many people in my family?  I don’t know what it is, but I like it.
