Ancient Egyptian goddess Ma'at, tomb of Queen Nefertari. Ma'at was a symbol in Egyptian mythology of truth, order, law, morality and justice. This painting of Ma'at is found in the tomb of Queen Nefertari above the entrance to the burial chamber. Nefertari lived around 1300-1255 BC and was the first wife of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. The tomb was rediscovered in 1904 by the Italian archaeologist Ernesto Schiaparelli. It is located in the Valley of the Queens, near the ancient city of Thebes, Egypt. It is one of the best preserved and most ornate of all known tombs. In 2003 the tomb was closed to the general public.
