Egyptian Magic

“In the first Egyptian Room at the British Museum a painting, said to be of Queen Hatshepset, who lived about B.C. 1600, is hung on the walls (the Queen’s name has been painted out and that of Thothmes III. substituted), she is making perfume offerings; this picture is reproduced from an obelisk now fallen, which was set up by this Queen at Karnak. A print of this painting is reproduced in the English translation of Wiedemann’s Immortality of the Soul.” via

The image mentioned of Queen Hatshepset making offerings of perfume can be found page 12 of The ancient Egyptian doctrine of the immortality of the soul by Alfred Wiedemann.
