These ceiling paintings in the temple of Seti I in Abydos are incredibly beautiful to see in real life. Photographing them was a bit difficult, this is the best I could do.

Thanks a lot Elio and Nick! I had to put my camera on the ground to get this photo a bit sharp because of the 1.4 second exposure time. :) Some post-processing was required as well, there was a blue hue over the left part of the photo due to some artificial lights.
