"Seth approche Ankh et Ouas du visage d'Hatchepsout.
Nephthys se tient derrière.
Hatchepsout est représentée en femme et on ne
voit qu'un seul cartouche, il s'agit donc la grande épouse royale
et non pas du pharaon.
C'est normal puisque ce relief date de Touthmosis II."|
(Translated with help of reverso.net:)
"Seth approaches Hatchepsut's face with the Ankh and Was. Nephthys is behind her. Hatchepsut is represented as a woman and we see only one cartouche, she is likely the Great Royal Wife and not the Pharaoh. This is normal because this relief dates from Tuthmosis II."
The detail in this picture is very hard to see. Therefore, I enlarged it, and made a colored linear version. But then I found a better photo from which to trace in Eugene Cruz-Uribe's article "Seth, God of Power and Might" which appears in the 2009 issue of Journal of the American Research Center.
Afterwards I took the colors from my first attempt and colored my second trace.|
Andrzej Ćwiek tells of the “’monument à niches’ at Karnak, where Thutmose II was represented crowned by Osiris and Isis, and in a symmetrically placed scene Hatshepsut was given life by Seth, with Nephthys standing behind the queen.” (“Fate of Seth in the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari”, Centre d'Archeologie Mediterraneenne de l'Academie Polanaise des Sciences, Etudes et Travaux XXII, (2008), page 56.)
I discovered a relief fragment I originally had on another page is a detail from this larger piece:

A photo of this relief also appears in KMT magazine, VOLUME 15, NO. 4, Winter 2004-05,
which explains it is "On a limestone block of a destroyed monument of Thutmose II, in the Open Air Museum, 18th Dyn."
Trace of the image above"
It wasn't until I was well into my trace of it that I put two and two together.|
The British Museum is making their collection available online for study. Hence, I've found this fragment from the temple of Hatshepsut:
