Red Chapel

last update: 27.08.2006

West Gate - Block No. 218

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

Offerings to Amun, the block shows the offering of wine to Amun, "Lord of the Thrones of the Two Lands".

Note(s): the right side of the block was intentionally destroyed, most likely Hatshepsut had been depicted there.
