Head from an Osiride Statue of Hatshepsut

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 115

There were ten tall niches In the westernmost wall of the upper court of Hatshepsut temple, five on each side of the entrance to the main sanctuary. Inside these niches were mummiform images of Hatshepsut carved in high relief. The southern figures probably wore the white crown of Upper Egypt and the northern ones probably wore the double crown, like this example.
