Ceiling painting from the Tomb of the King Seti I

Detail of painting from the Tomb of Seti I, KV 17 in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes. Seti I was the son of King Ramesses I, the founder of the Nineteenth Dynasty, and the father of the famous king, Ramesses II. His tomb KV 17 in the Valley of the Kings was found by Belzoni in 1817 and it is considered one of the most beautiful tomb in the Valley. Here is a detail of one of the scenes covering the ceiling of the tomb. The scene represents the star-lit sky. Such a scene was very popular from the Old Kingdom when kings covered the ceilings of causeways with blue to represent the sky and yellow stars to represent the golden stars.
