Illustration of the interior of a royal tomb of a king of Ancient Egypt. This depiction is partially based on the tomb of Thutmose IV, the 8th king of the 18th Dynasty. Thutmose IV ruled from 1401 BC to 1391 BC. The tomb has many rooms and side room, with the tomb at lower right. An exploded view of the burial site is at upper right, including the sarcophagus inside it that contains the mummified body of the king.
Thutmose IV’s tomb (KV43) was rediscovered in the Valley of the Kings in 1903 by British Egyptologist Howard Carter (for Theodore M. Davis). The tomb shown here is adorned with wall paintings and carvings, and ornate funerary objects and statues, along with sarcophagi of family members.
