For those that dont know

Quote:
Though left unfinished, this is the finest carved tomb in the Valley of the Nobles. Ramose was a governor of Thebes and vizier of Egypt under both Amenophis III and Amenophis IV (better known as Akhenaten). It is significant not only for the quality of its paintings and low reliefs, but because the wall carvings show a transition between the formal style under Amenophis III and the new, looser style under Akhenaten. (Akhenaten was the "rebel" pharaoh who established the world's first monotheistic religion, based on a belief in the Aten, or sun disk.)
