“Tomb of an artist”
Review of Tomb of Sennedjem

Tomb of Sennedjem
Ranked #24 of 85 things to do in Luxor
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 31, 2013

This small tomb is considered to be even more beautiful than the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, not for its complex composition, as that found in the pharaohs' tombs, but for its vibrant colours that have been preserved until its recent discovery only a bit over a hundred years ago. This artist, who was an official painter of pharaohs' tombs, painted his own tomb which would explain the top quality of artistry.

However there is one more tomb that I found to be even more beautiful than this one. If you can't get enough of tombs, then I highly recommend the Valley of the Nobles (see my review).

not many people know about this place...you would think that it was painted yesterday as the paint is that colourful, the detail is amazing and the guide will give you an explanation of the tomb...a must if you are in the west bank

This tomb looks like it was painted yesterday. The colours are rich and beautiful. There are no photos allowed in here and the walk down to the tomb is a bit steep and you need to bend over so I would not recommend this tomb to those who are uncomfortable in small spaces or have trouble walking.

Walls adorned with lovely and very well preserved paintings of life and death as it affected lesser mortals. Sennedjem was an overseer of workers, and must have been highly respected. Brilliant colours.

You must see this tiny but beautifully painted tomb. Try and hire a guide like Shaimaa Baheeg who can explain in advance, using postcards, what you'll see and what to look out for.
