Model Adzes and More

Here is an interesting page that shows photos of some inscribed model adzes found in the foundation deposit of Hatshepsut's temple at Deir el Bahari.  I've never seen these before.  Worth a look.


When you get to the page click on the arrows for more photos pertaining to Hatshepsut and Thutmose III.  They are really marvelous.  The left arrow leads to some statues of the queen and the right one to objects throughout the rest of pharaonic history.
