Hatshepsut Punt Relief - Brussels

Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels

This is just one of the fragments from Deir el Bahri housed outside Egypt, but known to Egyptology

Although not in-situ, fragments like these can be used when piecing together the walls of Hatshepsut's mortuary temple. Exact replicas can be made and integrated into the temple walls.

From the Punt Colonnade, originally. The photograph comes from the Global Egyptian Museum's website. they have a great collection of Egyptian artifacts and are well worth the visit.
