Chapter Summary

An in-depth study of the material preserved at the Cairo and Turin museums has made possible a partial reconstruction of some of the scenes portrayed on the wall registers, but has also provided a hypothetical plan and elevation of the temple. The fragments of cavetto cornice and corner columns preserved at Turin, as also the lower and some of the upper registers, are the sole actual elements that remain of the monument's original architectural plan. A study of the architectural remains and decoration makes it possible to attempt a reconstruction of the cornice, estimate the measurements of the elevation and place some of the registers.

Keywords: architectural plan; Cairo; cavetto cornice; decoration; hypothetical reconstruction; Red Chapel of Hatshepsut; Turin
