Tomb of Sennedjem, Luxor

5.0
The final resting place of an ancient Egyptian artisan and his family, Tomb of Sennedjem features masterful masonry and colorful bas-reliefs. Hewn into the cliffs, this maze of a mausoleum bears the extremely well-preserved paintings of an important artist who decorated the nearby royal tombs. See Sennedjem's self-portrait, depicting him harvesting wheat while his wife sows seeds behind him. Made during the reign of Seti I and Ramses II over 3,200 years ago, the tomb still features fantastic colors and images.

  • Going down to 2 tombs that were houses, you have to take a good shot of oxygen and everything is fine. We don't stay long, of course, because the secret perspiration of bacteria that destroy the walls.

  • Everything to show you the city of workers, its urban and educational organization. But also temples and tombs. These have the merit of being more sober and finer in the proposal of the different reliefs. It seems that the sponsors have called on the best of the best to organize their own trips to the afterlife. It seems to me to have found similar motifs and compositions in the Art Nouveau produced centuries later.
