Three years custom writing essays uk Natron, the stuff for which the lake is named, should also sound a bit familiar to you. That’s because it’s the mineral salt the ancient Egyptians used as part of their mummification rituals. (In fact, they used to harvest it from dry lake beds — Lake Natron isn’t the only lake in Africa that’s home to large quantities of naturally occurring natron.) It’s both a serious drying agent and anti-bacterial, so immersion in natron can suck all the moisture out of a dead body while simultaneously preserving it against the ravages of microorganisms. As far as I can tell, that’s what you’re seeing in Brandt’s creepy photos — birds and bats that look like Tim Burton’s garden statuary, but are actually just mummified (and then propped up for artistics purposes).
