Buddha body

Now on temporary display at the Hungarian Natural History Museum in Budapest is a Buddha statue recently found to contain the mummified remains of 12th c. Chinese Buddhist master Liuquan. His body was revealed by CT scan (IMAGES HERE), his abdominal cavity was determined to contain paper scraps with Chinese characters, and DNA analysis is being carried out on his bones.
