Egyptian god Khepri. This mythological deity is painted in the tomb of Queen Nefertari. Kheprisymbolises the Sun, rebirth, renewal and resurrection. He is depicted as a man with the head of a dung beetle. Queen Nefertari lived around 1300-1255 BC and was the first wife of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. Her 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.
