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

There are 1 comment on the The Escapist story from Aug 20, 2014, titled Siberian Elders Vote to Bury Ice Mummy to Ward Off Earthquakes, Floods. In it, The Escapist reports that:

The Siberian Ice Maiden, also known as the Princess of Ukok, Altay Princess or Ochi-Bala, is to be put back in her tomb thanks to a campaign by Altay Region spiritual leaders and elders, who are worried that as long as she stays in the hands of scientists the gate to the underworld will remain open.

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.
