Red Chapel

last update: 15.11.2009

North Wall - Block No. 217


Stone: red quartzite (origin - from the "Red Mountains" of Djebel Akhmar, an area near Heliopolis)

Only half of the block has survived. It shows Hatshepsut (right) offering three vessels with oil (as mentioned by the text below her hands) to Amun. The inscription behind Amun (incomplete) reads: " [I give you] life, happiness, as you are depending on me, health like Ra, every day." Behind Hatshepsut her royal Ka is still visible.
