Distribution of Blocks on the Inner North Side of the Sanctuary

The plan above shows the distribution of the recovered blocks across the inner north wall of the sanctuary after final reconstruction. The plan is based on the draft published by Burgos, F., Larché, F., La chapelle Rouge. Le sanctuaire de barque d'Hatshepsout. CFEEK, Paris 2006 and photos taken by the author.

The blocks of the west and east gate of the sanctuary are presented together on an own page.

Thematically several main points can be established:
Register 1, Frieze "All life, all stability, all happiness [nb anx, nb Dt, nb wAs]"
Register 2, Entry into the "Palace of Amun", speech to the Ennead
Register 3, Adoration of Amun, entry into the sanctuary, offerings to Amun
Register 4, Hatshepsut [offering] before Amun
Register 5, Hatshepsut [offering] before the barque of Amuns
Register 6, Hatshepsut [offering] before Amun
Register 7, Discourse of the Iunmutef-priest, Hatshepsut offers before Amun
Register 8, Thutmosis III. [offering] before Amun

Clicking on a number opens a separate page showing the corresponding block.
