The image(s) will be promptly removed.
Thick glass panels have been installed in the tomb in order to protect the wall paintings. The wall paintings in the tomb are lighted by means of neon tubes placed between the glass panels and the paintings.
During my exploration of the tomb, I noticed that the glass panels were often not cleaned properly.
This made it difficult to clearly see the details of the wall paintings.
The dirty glass panels and the neon lighting in the tomb cause reflections and superpositions on photos of the wall paintings, even when using professional photography equipment.
It was therefore necessary to edit the photographs in order to remove these distracting elements.
The aim of the editing process was always to display the original wall paintings as accurately as possible.
