Red Chapel

last update: 24.03.2008

South Wall - Block No. 172

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

Coronation, on the left scene Hatshepsut is taken by Amun (in front of her) and Atum, "Lord of Heliopolis, Lord of the Great House", (behind her) to the temple.

Note(s): the scene on the left part of the block probably follows a purification scene, however, the preceding block is missing
