## Iconography of Hatshepsut and Thumose III in the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari as a reflection of the relationship between co-rulers

### Marta Sankiewicz

#### Abstract

Royal iconography in the temple of Hatshepsut AT Deir el-Bahri reflects unusual circumstances of simultaneous reign of two legitimate rulers: Hatshepsut and Thutmose III. The hypothesis was proposed that Hatshepsut by using various ways of the arrangement of representations showed Thutmose III in the secondary position. Pairs of evaluative features were established, mainly based on the hierarchy of the cardinal points, of which one was more important and expected for Hatshepsut, and the other secondary and had to refer to Thutmose III. Then analyzed all the images of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III of the walls of Deir el-Bahari. Particular emphasis was placed on the highlighted pairs of complementary representations of co-rulers. Summary showed that in fact most dominant features has been assigned to representations of Hatshepsut, while Thutmose III was characterized by elements of the secondary meaning.
