Tomb Of Mentuherkhepeshef
known for the high quality painted decorations along the entrance corridor
high up in the valley's Eastern wall
The Tomb of Ramses IX’s son, whose name translates as ‘The Arm of Montu is Strong’, is located high up in the valley’s eastern wall.
Its entrance corridor is adorned with life-sized reliefs of various gods, including Anubis and falcon-headed Horus (god of the sun), receiving offerings from the young prince, who is shown in all his finery, wearing exquisitely pleated fine linen and a blue-and-gold ‘sidelock of youth’ attached to his black wig - not to mention his gorgeous make-up (as worn by both men and women in ancient Egypt).
