I have lots of memory from this cave, that is why i decided to draw a sketch from it and color it. When the cave was discovered they didn't find much in it, just a huge statue and lots of scripts and ... it was always a mystery because there was no particular reason for the king to build a statue there and just leave it! I always thought there is something there; also I found a hole in the cave which was said by one our professional rolling cave, that the hole should end in a huge hall, I tried to go there but unfortunately it was not possible with normal equipment.

I bet someday someone is going to find huge amount of treasure in that hole...
