Room 42 Information

Room 42, the third court in procession from the entrance of the palace, contains intricate latticework on its upper walls and double-framed niches that are distinctly painted.

Thanks to favorable environmental conditions, the walls of Room 42 have retained enough residual colored paint to accurately reconstruct what the original wall painting would have been like. Color here was often applied in horizontal strips of red, black, white, and yellow ochre atop stucco.
