Four Kneeling Statues of Smaller Size
Dynasty 18, joint reign of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, (ca. 1473-1458 B.C.E.)
Granite, from Thebes, originally from Hatshepsut's temple at Deir el-Bahri; MMA excavations, 1922-23, 1926-27

"At least eight, perhaps up to twelve statues of Hatshepsut of this type are thought to have been placed along the last section of the processional way in the uppermost court of the temple. Hatshepsut is again represented kneeling, in this instance wearing the soft khat headcloth and presenting djed (endurance) symbols and nemset water jars, a combination of gifts that was part of the rituals around the procession of the boat-shaped ('barque') shrine in which the image of the god Amun was conveyed once a year across the river to rest overnight in the sanctuary of Hatshepsut's temple." (From the Metropolitan Museum, NYC info card)

“It is not precise to call Hatshepsut a queen, despite the English understanding of the word; once she took the throne, Hatshepsut could only be called a king. In the ancient Egyptian language, the word queen only existed in relation to a man, as the “king’s woman.” Once crowned, Hatshepsut served no man.”

We’ve got a brand-new essay on the kick-ass, cross-dressing Egyptian ruler Hatshepsut. Just don’t call her a queen.
