A link to a
picture of the corpse can be found
This corpse is 1.7 m tall (about 5'6"). This Western Han Dynasty official was around
60 years old when he died over 2140 years ago. His inner organs were removed into one container and
the other container has his brain. His body was treated with chemical preservatives
which slowed down decay, and the tomb became flooded which also served to preserve him.

Interesting translations from Chinese to English abound throughout
China. Here "electrified" refers to Audio-Visual capacities (e.g. internet enabled, DVD/CD players available,
computers present, etc.), but the wording brings to mind cattle prods or electric fences to motivate
students and keep them in the classroom.
