Detail of painting from the Tomb of Seti I, KV 17 in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes. The Litanies of Re was a major religious composition of the New Kingdom. It is found for the first time in the tomb of Seti I with a figure related to the title. This unfinished scene showing the god Re in a shape of a snake with two wings, is part of the third hour from the book of Imydwat. It covers the walls of a passage with stairways near the entrance to the King's tomb.
