Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project



Valley of the Kings. View from the north looking down into the valley from the hills above. Dominating the valley and the entire area of Western Thebes is the pyramidal shaped mountain, called in Arabic, the "Qurn." It is possible that the Egyptians conceived of this peak as a natural pyramid, in the shadow of which they built the royal tombs. In the distance, center-right, can be seen the tombs of Ramesses IV (c. 1151 B.C.) and Ramesses VI (c. 1141 B.C.). (Caption - Peter Piccione)
