    Look at the Momia Juanita also known as the Inca Ice Maiden and Lady of Ampato, is the well preserved frozen body of an Inca girl who was killed as an offering to the Inca gods sometime between 1450 and 1480 when she was approximately 11 to 15 years old. She was discovered on Mount Ampato (part of the Andes cordillera) in southern Peru in 1995 by anthropologist Johan Reinhard and his Peruvian climbing partner, Miguel Zarate. “Juanita” has been on display in Catholic University of Santa MarĂ­a’s Museum of Andean Sanctuaries (Museo Santuarios Andinos) in Arequipa, Peru almost continuously since 1996, and was displayed on a tour of Japan in 1999.
