This is very interesting and the tattoo's quite extraordinary and so very clear . I am still of the idea that although fascinating once studied these remains should be returned to their original burial grounds.The pictures especially of the head were quite gruesome. I just want to say ,I hope one day you may rest in peace Siberian Lady and that you will be returned to where you were in the first place.

I must say that I agree with Molly, that after the studies of this woman are done, she should be returned to what was her original resting place. Just goes to show that the art of tatoo is a very ancient one. I also doesn't say in article but she herself may of been an actual warrior as well. I know the article states possible revered folk tale narrator, healer, holy woman, princess, this all could also be the case but she could of also been warrior. One of the less known facts is throughout history there have always been women who choose that life instead of the more traditional ones set before them.
