Do you know of any other hi res color photos of graffiti on an ancient stone block in Egypt that was not intended to be exposed in any contiguous passage or chamber?
Those blocks in the RCs are not part of the main passage/chamber system and therefore did not need the surface to be cleaned of all markings. That's why they still have the "gang" glyphs on them, too.
In fact, do you know of ANY hand-painted so-called "gang" graffiti glyphs that were photographed in color on a planar surface of a hewn block from anywhere in ancient Egypt?
If not, well THAT's quite an enigma.

How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
