[EGYPT 29870] ’Seti in front of Ished tree at Abydos.’ This relief shows a kneeling Seti I presenting his jubilees to and enthroned Ptah. The jubilees are visualized by a figure of Heh, the god of eternity, depicted in a crouching position. He his holding a (leafless) palm stem in each hand, which symbolized long life to the Egyptians, the years being represented by the notches on the stem. Ptah, wearing his distinctive blue cap, is writing on a small table, which he holds in his lower hand, probably recording the jubilees. On the right we see Ra-Horakhty inscribing the name and the jubilees of the pharaoh on the leaves of the Ished tree. The Ished tree was a sacred tree of which it was thought that the gods wrote the name of the kings at coronation and jubilee festivals, to assure them that their names, and thus their lives, would be perpetuated. The original Ished tree was said to have grown in the temple of Ra at Heliopolis. It can probably be identified as a Desert Date (Balanites aegyptica). The relief is located on the west wall of the Second Hypostyle Hall of the Seti I Temple at Abydos, between the entrances of the Chapel of Ptah and the Chapel of Ra-Horakhty. The Seti Temple at Abydos was begun by Seti I and completed by his son Ramses II in the 13th century BC. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
