Queen Nefertari Meritmut, favorite wife of pharaoh Ramesses II, was the patron of a temple at Abu Simble. Her tomb in the Valley of the Queens is a beautiful example of New Kingdom art. The next eight pictures below are hand colored photographs from the book "Book of the Dead and Elysian Fields" published in Egypt in the early twentith century.
