Many of them contain outstanding wall paintings of the king with gods and goddesses, as well as papyri, mummies, decorated coffins and other artifacts. This is the first book to reproduce these murals in full, and to explore the meanings of the esoteric and arcane Netherworld Books that decorated the royal tombs. The images are accompanied by in-depth analyses of the most deeply held beliefs of the ancient kings and queens who lay there, beliefs that provided the impetus of the building, decoration and equipping of these magnificent tombs."--Jacket." ;
