Tomb of Ramses VI
The Tomb of Ramses VI is one of the most striking and architecturally interesting tombs within the Valley of the Kings, which is situated on the west bank of the Nile in Luxor. Originally built for Ramses V and expanded upon by Ramses VI during the 20th dynasty, its decoration is one of the most sophisticated and complete of the royal tombs.
In general, the Tomb of Ramses’ elaborate decoration depicts the story of the origins of heaven and earth, including the creation of the sun and life itself. Extracts from the Book of Gates and the Book of Caverns adorn the entrance corridor, and these continue into the midsection of the tomb, with the addition of the Book of the Heavens.
The tomb’s most notable and striking feature is the stunning vaulted ceiling in the main burial chamber featuring a double image of the Goddess Nut swallowing the sun. This is said to represent the endless cycle of life and the revival of the souls of the dead pharaohs.
