Red Chapel

last update: 24.03.2008

North Wall - Block No. 15

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

Offerings to Amun, the block shows Thutmosis III (right) who pulls the ithyphallic Amun (left), "King of Gods", by his arm towards himself. Behind Thutmosis his royal Ka is depicted which mistakenly was given the Horus-name of Hatshepsut.
