Stone: red quartzite (origin - from the "Red Mountains" of Djebel
Akhmar, an area near Heliopolis)
Beautiful Feast of the (Desert) Valley, Register 5, return from
from Deir el-Bahari to Karnak.
The block shows the
barque of Amun which had been put inside the "Alabaster Chapel"
called "Enduring is the foundation of Amun" (inscription right
below the barque inside the chapel) after the return to Karnak. Left of
the chapel Hatshepsut is actually performing the ritual "Giving the field,
4 times (wdj sxt zp jfdw)" (as the
text in front of her reads). She is accompanied by the running Apis bull.
The text above the bull tells "Getting out [the] Apis (pHrr
Hapw)". "Giving the filed, 4 times" and "Bringing out [the]
Apis [bull]" indicated that Hatshepsut is performing "sed-festival".
