The article is about damages to the architecture and wall decoration of niches in the Vestibule of Hatshepsut in the Royal Mortuary Cult Complex. Traces of ancient repairs may be discerned in the distorted layers of limestone blocks and deformed relief. The nature of this restoration indicates that it took place once the sculpting of the reliefs had been completed but before the painting. The reasons for this can be related to the short building time of the temple.
