Relief depicting the rulers of Punt in the Temple of Hatchepsut

Fragment of a scene representing the country of Punt from room 12 of the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, now located in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This limestone relief is one of many decorated blocks recording the expedition sent by the Queen Hatshepsut to the land of Punt. The scene shows Parihu, the ruler of Punt, holding a stick. Behind him stands his wife called Ati. It is likely that the Egyptian artist carved her fat because she was infected with the disease known as "elephantiasis", characterized by the swelling of a part of the body and common in tropical regions. Behind the wife there is a native from Punt.
