Currently, Ötzi is preserved in a special structure with optimum storage conditions while allowing observation. Together with the body were also found clothing and personal items of great archaeological interest, such as a yew bow, a quiver with two arrows ready and others in progress, a flint knife, a copper ax, a marble pearl, a tinder-box, and a backpack to hold the items.
Recent exams have shown the presence of a flint arrowhead in the left shoulder and other wounds and bruises that lead to hypothesize a violent death rather than natural causes, as had been suggested at first. The unnatural posture of the body seemed an attempt to extract an arrow from the belly; additional elements suggest that a group of men escaped an ambush, probably a companion transported his body to the place of death.
Ötzi has another record: he is the first tattooed person of whom we have knowledge: on his body as many as 57 tattoos were identified, which made him a cult for tattoo artists around the world.
