Friday Map (3): Tomb of Imrat-Ustad

Today's map is a small tomb and cavern I'm calling the Tomb of Imrat-Ustad.

The name comes from Ustad Imrat Khan, who happens to be a great surbahar and sitar master. Imrat Khan is not dead (as far as I'm aware), so I'm not quite sure why I named a tomb after him, other than that I meditate and draw maps to his music from time to time. You can see a couple of his older performances here and here, if you're into that sort of thing. And this performance with his sons is absolutely mind blowing. ;-)

The layout of the tomb section is (to keen-eyed observers of Egyptian archaeology) based on the layout of KV62, the tomb of Tutankhamun, in the Valley of the Kings.
