last update: 24.12.2007

Vestibule, North Side - Block-No. 260

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

The scene shows Hatshepsut kneeling before the barque of Amun, Lord of all Thrones of the Two Lands, and offering two vessels - most likely with wine (the text is missing, s. also Block 100).
Between the pile of offerings and the title of Hatschepsut, "Good Goddess, Lady of the Two Lands", the goddess Wadjit is depicted  sitting on a basket which is mounted on a papyrus.
Behind the queen her Ka is depicted with her throne-name.
