Red Chapel

last update: 27.08.2006

West Gate - Block No. 167

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

The incomplete block belongs to the 9th register and shows two scenes: the left scene shows the "Good God" Men-kheper-Ra offering incense; the right scene shows the "Good God", Lord of the Two Lands Men-kheper-Ra (on the right) offering two bowls of fresh water to the ithyphallic Amun (left), "Lord of Heaven".
