If you can't get to Egypt anytime soon, take John McDonald's informative tour of beloved Queen Nefertari's tomb, which has only been open to the public since 1995. The beautifully structured House of Eternity is replete with full-color photographs of the contrasting desert landscape, the elaborate tomb, and the paintings. Included are explanations of the hieroglyphs and artwork, plus interesting snippets from Nefertari's culture. For example, the queen's own status wasn't enough to make her powerful in the afterlife. The magical chapter 17 from the Egyptian Book of the Dead contains a spell that is painted on Nefertari's tomb walls to assure her transformation from playing senet, to becoming a "ba" bird, then finally worshipping a lion-headed god. To ensure success, the spell ends right at the doorway that marks the burial chamber.
Most souls were believed to experience the judgment of Osiris–not so with Nefertari, whose tomb contains no mention of this trial. In fact, most of the gods seem to be greeting Nefertari and urging her through the many passages to Necropolis, the city of the dead. Although the annexes are not open to the public, McDonald has included a photograph and discussion of the only evidence of Nefertari in mummified form.

This book focuses on the proceedings of a meeting on the conservation of wall paintings held at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London in 1987. The papers, by an international group of experts, address both pre-conservation assessment techniques and methods of monitoring projects after conservation. The conservation of some well-known paintings, such as the Sistine Chapel, the Brancacci Chapel, and the Nefertari tomb are discussed. A definitive paper on the effect of salts on wall paintings is also included.

Nere nubi minacciano la pace appena raggiunta: gli ittiti continuano a premere ai confini del regno; Ofir e Shenar, i nemici di sempre, tramano ancora nell'ombra; gli ebrei guidati da Mosè, l'amico fraterno di un tempo, si sollevano contro il faraone. Circondato da mille pericoli, Ramses sa di poter contare sulla magica protezione di Nefertari e le offre il più favoloso dei regali: un monumento al loro amore eterno, che consegni alle future generazioni l'immagine della grande sposa reale.
