Was Michael Jackson really a reincarnated Egyptian? At least a few visitors to the Chicago Field Museum seem to think so. The museum's collection contains a limestone bust of an Egyptian woman that bears an uncanny likeness to the late King of Pop, including a disfigured nose. The bust was carved between 1550 B.C. and 1050 B.C. and has been on exhibit since 1988. Though he played an Egyptian courtier in the video for his smash hit "Remember the Time," it is doubtful Michael even knew of the statue's existence.
“I have no idea whether Jackson ever visited the museum,” a Field spokesperson said to the Sun-Times’ Michael Sneed. “But the similarity between the limestone statue of a woman – which is about 3,000 years old — and Jackson is astounding.”
