Temple of HatshepsutStreaming Video - 2006
Hatshepsut, Egypt's only female pharaoh, was said to be a ruler with two faces: one political, the other artistic. This program tours her architectural masterpiece, the terraced and rock-cut temple at Deir el-Bahri that her people called djeser-djeseru, "sacred of sacreds." Numerous paintings adorning the interior chronicle her achievements and peace-loving enterprises, and a computer-generated reconstruction of frescoes gives a glimpse of the exotic land of Punt. Why did Hatshepsut's successor desecrate her beautiful works and strive to erase her very existence from history?
