Siberian Elders Vote to Bury Ice Mummy to Ward Off Earthquakes, Floods

The facial reconstruction seen here represents part of the problem; though the artist recreated what appears to be a Caucasian face, with no Mongolian features, Altai experts complain the artist made her completely European. DNA testing has since confirmed the Ice Maiden cannot be an ancestor of the people living in the Altay Region now, and has more in common with Germans or Basques than the Altay people.
No probllem. They did it correctly. That's how it is, folks.
