Red Chapel

last update: 15.11.2009

North Wall - Block No. 297

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

This block shows Hatschepsut (right) offering two round pots or vessels (with vine?) to the ithyphallic Amun (left), "Lord of the Thrones of the Two Lands".

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