dating back to the twentieth dynasty, pharaoh’s ramses VI tomb (KV9) was initially built by king ramses V and later on taken over by his uncle ramses VI. located in the valley of the kings, the tomb is 104 m (341 ft)-long and features some of the most well-preserved wall reliefs and decorations. funerary texts, like the book of gates, the book of caverns, the amduat, and the book of the dead are there to help the king in his journey into the afterlife.

by tilting their head (or screen) up, viewers can enjoy the exquisite ceiling decorations which include astronomical scenes. the ceilings on the burial chamber have been dedicated to nut, the goddess of the sky and heavens, where she is depicted about to swallow a sun disk, representing the sunset. other sun disks dance around nut’s body, depicting the suns movement, from day to night, and showing how the mortal king could achieve a glorious rebirth in the eastern horizon at dawn.
