Out of the ordinary: Ötzi, the 5300-year-old iceman, has been reconstructed

Ötzi, the 5300-year-old iceman, has been reconstructed 20 years after he was found on a glacier in the Italian Alps. The reconstruction performed by Dutch artists Alfons and Adrie Kennis is on display at the Archaelogical Museum in Bolzano, Italy, until January 15, 2012. The reconstruction is based on scientific tests and 3-dimensional photos of Ötzi’s skeleton. The new model is half naked only "to show that his body was muscular and well trained," said anthropologist Albert Zink, who worked with forensic artists on the reconstruction.
Researchers have established that at the time of his death Ötzi was about 45, weighed 50 kg and his height was 1.60 m, average at the time. 
The technology used to preserve Ötzi at a temperature of -6.5°C will be improved in order to prevent deterioration, and nitrogen will be used.
Following the death of several persons, rumours of curses have surrounded Ötzi: the Australian archaeologist Tom Loy died while writing a book on the iceman in 2005, and one of the experts who had analysed the mummy met with accidental death while on the way to a conference on the mysterious iceman.
