One more thing about the so called bl onde hair on mummies is that the embalimng process turns hair light colors,which most white supremist use as proof of White egyptians.
Here is my example in regards to the Yuya mummy
Like the mummy of her husband the wrappings of the mummy of Thuya had
been severly damaged by robbers. The bandages have been covered wioth
black resin,which still bear the impression of stolen jewerly.
The mummy presents some unusual features for the Period. The
emablimng incision is almost vertical and has been sewn up with a
string. No plate covers the wound,which gapes open,exposing the linen
packing filling the body cavity.
The arms are fully extended with the palms of the hand flattened
against the thighs.
The mummy is of a small old lady with typical Egyptian features who
was possibly over fifty when she died.
Thuya has scantly white hair,know turned yellow by the materials
used in the embalimng \, On the top her head the hair is very thing
much like a pony tail in photographs,are in fact,the remains of the
linen wrappings around the head and back of the neck of the mummy
Faces of the Pharoahs
I will admit though that electron microscropes found Rames II to be a red head,but remeber Egyptologist Kent R Weeks tells people that red hair was rare in Ancient Egypt,not that it a common trait.
It is possible that Rames II family either came from the Delta,or his family came form Libyan Mercenaries which often have light complected features themselves.
Second issue is hetep Hephres whom George Reisner called a blonde haired Egyptian,which he tried to trasnlate as the lady is blonde.
The truth is that the so called Blonde hair on hetep Hephres was nothing more than a wig. Egyptian women often wore wigs of different colors including blue and green,whould that mean it was their natural hair color. Absolutley not.
And the votive
quote that's being referred to actually translates to 'she shines
like the sun' (Rocatti 1982), not 'she's blonde'!
