The Plomo Mummy (also known as Boy of El Plomo, El Plomo Mummy, or La Momia del Cerro El Plomo in Spanish) is the well preserved remains of an Incan child found on Cerro El Plomo near Santiago, Chile in 1954. It was the first frozen mummy discovery of high-altitude human sacrifice by the Incas, a practice called qhapaq hucha.
