Red Chapel

last update: 25.03.2008

Vestibule, North Side - Block-No. 046

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

The partly destroyed block shows Hatshepsut walking to the "Great House [Palace]" of her father Amun. On the corresponding block of the southern wall of the vestibule the "Good Goddess, Lady of the Two Lands" a nemes-headdress, and like here an anx-sign and a mace in the right hand, a staff in the left hand.
In front of the queen two standards are shown, one with the Upuaut on the top, the other one with a Khons-symbol.
Behind the queen her Ka is depicted with her Horus-name "Wosret-Kau".

Note(s): parts of the scene had been deliberately destroyed
