West Gate - Block No. 215

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

Offering scene, the block shows on the right the "God Goddess" Maat-ka-Ra who runs with a vase in each hand to offer "fresh, cool water (Xnp qbHw)" to the ithyphallic Amun; the left scene shows Hatshepsut embraced by Amun.
