#travel_scoop She was the first of the Great Royal Wives of Ramesses the Great “Ramesses II”, her name means the 'beautiful companion' .Her Royal Highness Queen Nefertari. One of the best known Egyptian queens, her lavishly decorated tomb is not less stature than her, as it is one of the largest and most spectacular tombs in the Valley of the Queens.
The tomb of Queen Nefertari was laid in the Valley of the Queens, Luxor.
The astronomical ceiling of the tomb painted as a dark blue, with a myriad of golden stars representing the heaven. The east wall of the antechamber flanked by the representation of Osiris at left and Anubis at right.
The tomb itself is primarily focused on the Queen’s life and on her death. The walls and the pillars are entirely covered with decorations. Paintings of the Queen playing Draughts, a whole entire wall show the Queen at playing Senet. A painting in the tomb for Nefertari coming before the god of writing and literacy to proclaim her title as a scribe.
Also a poetry written by Ramesses about his favorite beloved dead wife is featured on some of the walls of her burial chamber. ("My love is unique — no one can rival her, for she is the most beautiful woman alive. Just by passing, she has stolen away my heart.")
The real value of the paintings found within the tomb is that they are the best preserved and most detailed source of the ancient Egyptian’s journey towards the afterlife. #egyptscoop #egypt#luxor#queennefertiti#ancientegypt#travel#explore#travellife#culture#instatravel#temple#tomb#oldegypt#history#tourist#tourism
