A 4,000-year-old Egyptian tomb was recently discovered in Egypt. In addition to the incalculable historical value, something even more caught the attention of researchers: his painting is practically intact, as if it had been made recently.

relationship with royalty
According to Mohamed Mujahid, who led the excavation team, the tomb belonged to a nobleman known as Khuwy, from the Egyptian Fifth Dynasty, which took place from the 25th to 24th century BC. The entrance tunnel, which is a feature of the pyramids, and the chamber with several colorful relief paintings indicate an association with royalty.
Everything suggests that Khumy would have some relationship with the pharaoh Djedkare Isesi, who reigned at the time and whose pyramid is very close to the place of discovery. Inside the tomb, in addition to Khumy's mummy, canopies were also found, vessels used to store the embalmed viscera during the mummification process.
With the intention of revitalizing tourism in the country, the opening ceremony of the archaeological site was held by the Minister of Antiquities, Khaled al-Enanii, and was attended by ambassadors from other countries and even actors, such as the well-known Egyptian actress Yosra .
In addition to encouraging tourism, the discovery will also be of utmost importance to gather more information about the Djedkare Isesi dynasty.
