The tomb of Ramses 4 (1166-1160 BCE) does not contain great art, but it is still very popular. The reason are the fantastic colours and the many variations, and everything is well presented with escellent lightning.
But as this has been one of few open tombs since antiquity, it contains much of Greek and Coptic inscriptions, destroying many of the original decorations.
