Red Chapel

last update: 15.11.2009

North Wall - Block No. 284

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

The block shows the "Good Goddess, Maat-ka-Ra" (right) standing in front of Amun who holds an Ankh in each hand. He holds the left hand with the Ankh to her nose saying (according to the inscription behind him) "Life, Duration, Happiness at your nose, Good Goddess, Lady of the Two Lands, I am giving life to you forever."

Behind Hatshepsut her royal Ka is depicted again.
