Red Chapel

last update: 24.03.2008

North Wall - Block No. 132

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

The block shows Hatshepsut (right) offering a sacrificed animal - that is depicted lying on an altar - to the ithyphallic Amun (left).

Note(s): obviously, the figure of Hatshepsut and her cartouche have been deliberately erased
