Description
Sunk relief on the east facade of the Hypostyle Hall of the Temple of Khnum, Esna, Egypt. The relief depict the pharaoh (on the right) making an offering to the god Khnum (also Chnum, Knum, Khnemu) in the centre. The pharaoh wears the red crown, or Deshret, of lower Egypt. Khnum appears in ram-headed form and wears the double ostrich feather Shuti crown. He carries the ankh, symbol of life in his right hand. The figure on the left is the adolescent god Horus as indicated by his finger sucking and the long side-lock of hair. Horus wears the double crown of Egypt, the Pschent. The Ptolemaic and Roman temple was dedicated to the god Khnum. Only the hypostyle hall has survived and is now located in the centre of Esna.
