Experts have recreated the face of a Peruvian noblewoman who lived and died around A.D. 400. Using the latest forensic technology, they scanned the mummified remains of the Señora of Cao, who belonged to the pre-Inca Moche culture. The grave of the Señora was discovered in 2005 at a site in El Brujo on the north coast of Peru. Since then, she has become a symbol of Peruvian womanhood and indigenous cultural identity.
