Wow. It's kind of crazy that they would just keep them in a regular glass case like that.
It is interesting how they treated their dead differently then. It's almost as if they were expecting them to be reborn, where here, death is seen as an eternal sleep.

In Perú is common to find mummies in glass cases at the museums :D
In wetern culture Death is something totally separared from life, while in ancient Perú it was like the house next door. Families lived with their mummies, and offered them food as if they were alive. Well, we must remember that in ancient times death was pretty common, so people were more used to deal with deceased relatives than us.
