The Expeditions Scenes on New Kingdom Temples
The Egyptians undertook major journeys from very ancient times.
To get the timber for building their great ships they had to sail to the North-East (Lebanon, Syria,..)while the closest they could find incense indispensible to their divine services was in Punt reached by sailing South-East through the Red Sea along the East African coast.
The scenes of commercial or Military campaign/ trips, like the expedition to the Land of Punt are displayed.
These scenes depict many aspects of everyday life, portrayed in details on the walls of Hatshepsut’s temple Deir el Bahri and another kind of trips represented on the walls of Tuthmosis III’s festival hall at Karnak temple.
This book was divided into two chapters, the first one focus on the expedition to the Land of Punt during the reign of Queen Hatshepsut, while the other one speak about the botanical garden of king Tuthmosis III at Karnak temple as another kind of expeditions.
