The Litanies of Ra became an important part of the decoration of the royal tomb during the Ramesside period. The Litanies of Ra is not a guide through the Netherworld, but describes instead the various forms of the sun god, beginning by listing his seventy-five names. It is composed of the globe of the sun, inside which are carved the sun god in two of his guises: his dawn form Khepri, the scarab beetle, and his night form, the ram-headed Ra.
