This is brilliant - the only negative I can think of is perhaps the bindings on the forearm should be loose, to allow for the fact the cadaver shrivelled during mummification.  But this is just brilliant.

They are somewhat loose but the real mummy arm I was using for reference had most of the bandages fused to the flesh. This is common for most Egyptian mummies due to their use of resin to help bind it all together.

Did not know that, would have thought otherwise. But obviously you've researched well.

What if someone used it as a backscratcher?

As long as they pay for it, they can do what they want.
