Mummification is a natural process, and is used by humans for the preservation of a body. It is used for preserving it from destruction and decay. This process dates back to a very distant past. Today, the only way to keep a human body intact is by authorizing the embalming. The procedure varies from countries, customs and religions. One may well ask the origins of this practice, its use, and its consequences on the natural decomposition of a body. It is a preservation process that applies to all living beings, as evidenced by the results of our experience. Its origins date back to antiquity, and this practice has been evolving over the centuries. In order to illustrate the principle of conservation of a body by mummification, and to answer the problem, we conducted an experiment on two mice. One of the mice was mummified according to the "Egyptian art", and the second was left in a state of putrefaction, and arranged in the same conditions. After this experience, we could see the difference between the two major subjects.
