  • This photograph of a tomb wall painting depicts a scene from the Egyptian Book of the Dead. If you were really rich when you died, you didn't have to memorize all the important incantations that would lead you safely back to rebirth. With enough money, you could have some nice artist paint the relevant verses on the wall of your tomb.
