This relief was once brightly painted, as was most temple decoration. Unlike most temple reliefs, however, it was partially inlaid. The corpulent figures, labeled as bodies of water, were part of a procession of geographical personifications conveying the idea of parts of Egypt showing their submission and bringing their bounty to the temple.
