Red Chapel

last update: 29.11.2009

North Wall - Block No. 279

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 is on her way back to Karnak ferried across the Nile on the boat "Userhat-Amun".

Note(s): only the water line and the curved belly of the boat are still to be seen on this severely destroyed block
