A human body, whose internal organs were removed, was found concealed in an ancient Chinese Buddha statue after a CT scan was ordered on the statue by the Drents Museum in the Netherlands recently.

Inside the statue, which has a history of more than a thousand years, sits the mummified remains of a monk in the state of meditation, who was believed to be the Buddhist master Liuquan of the Chinese Meditation School.
