This paper addresses a great wooden (?) pole that appears in several Early Dynastic representations of sacred shrines from the Thinite period. The discussion includes an architectural analysis of the use of this pole in its context set in front of the larger structures. Based on its shape and its apparent function, it is proposed here that it should be referred to as a ‘worship pole’.
