This paper shows a VR application for explaining the meaning of the various pictograms and hieroglyphs typical of the ancient Egypt funerary rituals. The interaction between the user and the 3D environment is obtained through an Oculus Rift head mounted stereoscopic display, coupled with a Leap Motion controller as input device that digitize in real-time the hands of the end-user, displaying a skeletal version of those in the virtual environment. The interactive application is based on Unity3D and it explains the details of the rituals starting from the crate of an Egyptian sarcophagus and some typical funerary objects like the Heart Scarab and the Ushabty.
