The goddess Satet (left), the ram-headed god Khnum (center) and the Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose III (right) preside over a series of relief scenes decorating the walls of Queen Hatshepsut’s temple to Satet on Elephantine. Originally erected by one of Egypt’s rare female pharaohs more than 2,400 years ago, the temple has been rebuilt alongside two other shrines to Satet from different periods.
