Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project



Bark-Shrine of Seti II (ca. 1199 B.C.) in the Temple of Amun at Karnak, view from the southeast. This shrine is located in the first court of the temple adjacent to the First Pylon. It functioned as a ceremonial way-station for the portable barks and statues of the deities, Amun, Mut and Khonsu, when they were carried in procession from the temple during the great festivals (e.g., the Feast of Opet). The shrine contains three chapels, one for each of the deities. (Caption - Peter Piccione)
