I've begun looking at the 3rd Terrace of Deir el Bahri, specifically at the oversized Osiride statues of Hatshepsut. I am going to see how many of the Osiride heads can be located at Deir el Bahri and also within collections around the world. UPDATE: I am looking at all Hatshepsut Osiride Heads, not just the engaged (tied into the buildings structure and not freestanding) statues on the 3rd Terrace.
Another project (please excuse the over-use of the word "project") will be the Punt Collonade Block Project. Here i will concentrate solely on those Punt reliefs which survive today but do not appear at Deir el Bahri.
My aims are simple. I need to understand Deir el Bahri, bit by bit. Looking at specific subjects such as particular statues or colonnades will help me understand parts of the temple at a steady pace (or that's the plan). Also i am curious about what happened to these items since their discovery(ies). Where did they end up and how did they get there? I've tested the water on this recently and appreciate that provenance can be a bit of a sore point. However- its a pain in the neck i am happy to take on.
I am curious how much information I can be gather and how much I can learn in the process. A bit of serious fun.
