The countenance features almond-shaped eyes with elongated outer canthi, a bulbous nose, cupped ears, and a plaited false beard, and the tripartite wig is draped just above the dorsal pillar. A T-shaped hieroglyphic inscription is presented atop the legs and, while untranslated, provides the names of Osiris and the deceased.
