abusimbel_52.jpg
This is the niche with a statue of the god Ra-Horakhte. Situated above the central entrance of the temple.

The god is represented with the attributes of both Re (sun disk) and Horus (falcon-head). Left of the god we see the left part of a double scene, depicting Ramses II (wearing the so-called Blue Crown) offering a statuette of the goddess Maat to Re-Horakhte. In front we see part of an arm, hand and knee of the second colossal statue from the right. Clearly visible on the arm is the cartouche bearing Ramesses' throne name:
"Powerful is the justice of Re, the chosen one of Re"
