Four seasons of documentation in the Main Sanctuary of Amun-Re in the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari

Franciszek Pawlicki

Abstract

Four seasons of documentation have supplied pertinent data to indicate that the main sanctuary of Amun-Re in the Temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari was perceived from a theological perspective as a cult place for the local form of Foremost of 9sr-dsrw and for the royal worship of Hatshepsut connected with it. The latter aspect was of sufficient significance to warrant twice a far-going modification of the decoration of the tympanum of the East wall of the Hall of the Bark, influencing the way the Inner Sanctuary was illuminated.
