We need to know what the ceremonial boat in the Egyptian Oracle Ceremony looked like. Useful wall art from Medinet Habu are:


And the attached images. Could we duplicate that boat at temple Edfu?

We would like it to closely parallel the barque (of Khonsu?) depicted on the Sanctuary wall in this mural from Medinet Habu:

But this doesn't give us quite enough to go on.

Use the diagram and description in "The Gurob Shrine Papyrus" Authors: H.S. Smith and H. M. Stewart. The paper is attached to this post.

Also, the "Architectura Navalis: Ships Of The Pharohs: By Björn Landström. The illustrations on pages 120-121.
