Red Chapel

last update: 16.11.2007

Santuary, North Wall - Block-No. 118

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

The block shows two scenes:

- left: Hatshepsut anoint the body of the ithyphallic Amun-Ra, King of Gods,
- right: Hatshepsut is shown libating before the ithyphallic Amun-Ra, Lord of Heaven.


Note(s): both figures of Hatschepsut were deliberately destroyed
