Relief in the White Chapel of Sesostris I (also called Senusret or Senwosret I, 1974-1929 B.C.E.).  The chapel was used as a way station for the god’s boat when it was carried along in procession.
The chapel was in Ancient Egyptian times dismantled and reused as filling material.  It was recovered from within one of the pylons of the temple of Amun-Ra and reconstructed in its entirety.

Creator: Eliot Elisofon, photographer.
Title:
Hieroglyphic inscription at the “White Chapel” of Senwosret I. Karnak, Egypt, [negative].
Contained in: Eliot Elisofon Field photographs, 1942-1972
Produced: 1961
Summary:
“The richly decorated ‘white Chapel’ of Senwosret (Senusret, Sesostris) I (1972-1926 BCE) at Karnak shows the expanded use of inscriptions and representational art which developed in Middle Kingdom temples. Architectural symmetry also increased in the Middle Kingdom, and Senwosret’s ‘White Chapel’ on the processional route from the Great Temple of Amun at Karnak provides an example of an equally symmetrical and exquisitely fashioned barque chapel or way-station of this same period.” [Wilkinson R., 2000: The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt. Thames and Hudson].
“A village on East bank of the Nile in Upper Egypt; with Luxor, Karnak is on the site of ancient Thebes; location of temple of Amen, considered one of the finest examples of early New Kingdom religious architecture; also has many Middle Kingdom remains.” [The J.P.Getty Fund: Thesaurus of Geographic Names].
The photograph depicts relief detail showing Senwosret before Amun. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was working on “The Nile” project and traveled to Africa from March 14, 1961 to March 31, 1961, visiting Egypt.

Wooden statue of Senwosret I (Kheper-Ka-Ra) - second king of the 12th Dynasty

Near Senwosret I’s pyramid complex was found the tomb of Imhotep, the High Priest of Heliopolis. Archaeologists there uncovered two 23-inch wooden statues of Senwosret, one wearing the red crown of Lower Egypt and the other wearing the white crown of Upper Egypt.

On both its inner and outer faces the stone enclosure wall around the pyramid of Senwosret I at Lisht was decorated with one hundred relief panels, four of which have been reconstructed here using excavated fragments. The panels represent an image of the world according to ancient Egyptian beliefs. Between the fertile land below and the falcon of the sky above lies the realm of the pharaoh, symbolized by the ornate facade of his palace. Each rectangular field above the palace facade contains Senwosret’s Horus name, “Living in births.” The two panels on the near side of the gallery door also proclaim his throne name, Kheperkare (“The evolution of Re’s life force”). The king’s birth name, Senwosret (“Man of the powerful [goddess]”), is added to his Horus name on the panel closest to the window. …

Fig.1: Plan of the Temple of Senwosret I at Lisht (British School of Archaeology 1913).
The Temple of Senwosret I was built in the early part of the 12th Dynasty just before 1926 BC, about 1 km south of the pyramid of Senwosret’s father, Amenemhet I. The temple, excavated in 1913 by the British School of Archaeology, was approached from the east by a causeway, entrance hall, and colonnaded court. Senwosret’s actual burial, located to the west under the main temple, has not been excavated due to high ground water (Clayton 2006).

In the northeastern part of Senwosret’s compound, just outside the enclosure walls, are tombs of his retainers. These include a large mastaba tomb for Imhotep, his treasurer. Other burials were identified during excavations in the 1920s by the Metropolitan Museum.

At least nine small pyramids for royal women are located south of the pyramid of Amenemhet I, of which two are shown in this plan. Among those buried in these pyramids are Queen Nefru, wife of Amenemhet I, and their daughters, the Princesses Itekuyet, Nufru-Sobek, Nefru-Ptah, and Nenseddjedet (Clayton 2006).
