Check out this 3,000-year-old wooden toe prosthetic discovered on an Egyptian mummy.

Researchers think the toe is one of the world's oldest prosthetic devices.

New research found that the wooden toe was refitted several times. Based on the meticulous construction of the ancient prosthesis, the researchers determined the wearer — a priest's daughter — wanted the toe to look natural and be comfortable to wear.

The Early Iron Age prosthesis was found in a tomb cut into the older burial chapel at the graveyard hill of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, west of Luxor, Egypt.
