Santuary, North Wall - Block-No. 292

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

The block shows in the center Hatshepsut offering before the ithyphallic Amun-Ra, Lord of Heaven. Behind Hatshepsut the God's wife and some priests have entered the temple.
