Company creates virtual tour of Egyptian queen Nefertari's tomb in Egypt
Now you don't have to travel to Egypt to visit one of the country's most desired attractions: the tomb of Nefertari. Considered one of the most luxurious in Ancient Egypt, the temple of the wife of Pharaoh Ramses II receives many visits from tourists from all over the world.
Queen Nefertari died in the year 1254 BC, but her tomb was only discovered in 1904 by archaeologists exploring the region.
The user can have this experience available for free through the HTC Vive VR headset.
Those who don't have the device can at least see a preview of what the inside of the tomb looks like in an interactive video released on Youtube by CuriosityStream.
The work was done by the company Experius VR, and it took two months to record detailed images of the interior of the tomb to carry out the scanning process in three dimensions.
Located in the Valley of the Queens, on the banks of the Nile River, the tomb is considered one of the most luxurious in Ancient Egypt. With 520 square meters, the place is adorned with different paintings that depict the queen and the Egyptian deities. Before being rediscovered, the tomb suffered different looting in recent centuries, leaving few physical decorations in place.
The queen was one of the most important Egyptian figures of the 19th dynasty. The wife of Pharaoh Ramesses II, the greatest pharaoh in the history of the Egyptian Empire, played an important diplomatic role in her reign, showing herself to be, in addition to being beautiful, a woman of great fiber.
