In 2008 the remains were brought to the surface and investigated, but only now the surviving bones and the skull (it was found about 80% of the skeleton), scientists were able to recreate the appearance of the woman with the help of forensic 3D modeling. To do this, they drew on the work of Brazilian artist Cicero Moraes.
