Sandstone Gateway from Buhen. This doorway was set up by Thury, a viceroy of Buhen. The decoration is crude. On the lintel, Ahmose is shown before Horus of Buhen in the form of a hawk. Behind him is is mother, Queen Ahhotep. Ahmose is also shown before the god Min. The jambs are decorated with a vertical column of hieroglyphs, giving the titles of the king and the dedication of the doorway by the viceroy, Thury.
