Vestibule, North Side - Block-No. 306

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

The scene shows the "Bodily daughter of Ra, Hatshepsut-united-with-Amun, given life" before the ithyphallic Amun-Ra. The title of the scene (between both figures) reads: "Giving a libation of fresh water".
