The tomb of Ramses IX (KV6) was cut into the side of a hill, and has one of the most accessible entrances in the Valley of the Kings. When Ramses IX died, his tomb was not yet completed, so some of the walls were left undecorated. Plenty of art was finished, however, including a wonderful astronomical ceiling that depicts the goddess Nut swallowing the sun in the evening (she will give birth to it again in the morning). When the tomb was discovered, the pharaoh’s mummy wasn't inside. It was found later, in 1881, in the famous Deir al-Bahri cache.

One of the more popular tombs. The paintings here are relatively well-preserved and some of the drawings retain a fair amount of color.
