Caption

Wall paintings in the tomb of Queen Nefertari. The paintings show the mythological Egyptian gods Isis (left) and Nephthys (right). The middle figure is a mummy with the head of the god Ra and the body of the god Osiris. Queen Nefertari lived around 1300-1255 BC and was the first wife of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. Her tomb is found in the Valley of the Queens, Thebes, Egypt. It is one of the best preserved and most ornately decorated of all known tombs. It was rediscovered in 1904 by the Italian archaeologist Ernesto Schiaparelli, but has been closed to the public since 2003.
