In 2009 I was part of a Factum Arte team under the direction of Adam Lowe. We spent several weeks recording the tomb in 3D and high resolution photography. It looks like the data we recorded was used to establish the possibility of some hidden chamber(s) in the tomb, and that these chambers might link to Nefertiti’s tomb. Archeologist Nicholas Reeves studied our data to support his theory. A great story to follow.
This was showed on Nov 29th 2014 and shows Factum Arte workshops and work.

The tomb was recorded in 2009 by Piers Wardle and Gregoire Dupond (photographic data), Pedro Miro (3D data) and Naoko Fukumaru and Adam Lowe (color references), and this data can be viewed here. The making of the replica involved all staff at Factum Arte.
We are all thrilled that the replica could finally be installed in the location and conditions that were thought out by Adam Lowe since the beginning of the project.
Visit Luxor and when you do don’t forget to visit the replica.
