I did not photograph the Nespekashuty reliefs at the Met museum, the small photo is from their website. That and another view is at their website.

But I do have a couple close up photographs:

I wish I'd have gotten a close up of this section:

That is a crop from the top photo. It is unusual because we have an example of the rarely seen djam scepter:


"The spiral shaft of the djam-sceptre might be an imitation of lightning."(page 90)

"An interesting point is that the bull's leg, like the was-sceptre to be discussed below, seems to have played a part in the local cult of Seth. Both in Ombos and in Sepermeru Seth bears the epithet "Powerful of forefoot"." (page 89)

The non-wavy was scepter is seen everywhere, the Met museum has a particularly nice example, so it is good to have a djam, (aka 'tcham'). Also he is holding a jewel chest, Middle Kingdom example is at the Met.
