This gallery is devoted to color copies, known as facsimiles, of paintings from tombs and temples. The selection presented here will rotate each year, focusing on different topics. The sarcophagus in the center once belonged to a man named Wennefer (ca. early third century B.C.) and is decorated with beings that the Egyptians believed populated the underworld.
