Queen Ahmose

he pharaoh queen Hatshepsut claimed to be of divine origin, born of her mother Queen Ahmose and the god Amun. This portrait of Queen Ahmose is taken from a relief in the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri.

In the temple, Hatshepsut decorated the walls with scenes calculated to establish her claims of divine birth and her association to the throne by her human father.
