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

Opet procession from the temple of Karnak to the temple of Luxor along the 6 way-stations (barque shrines) of Hatshepsut - Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III follow the barque with the statue of Amun to the 2nd way-station. The scene on the right part of the block belongs to the scene on block 300 and shows Hatshepsut offering incense in front of the barque.
