Beautiful Feast of the (Desert) Valley, Register 5, return from from Deir el-Bahari to Karnak.
The block shows the procession carrying the barque of Amun "on the land to the canal" (as explained by the text), i.e. the procession is on the way back from Djeser djeseru to Karnak still on the West-Bank. Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III are following the barque (right).
