The wooden statuette represents the mummiform god Ptah-Sokaris-Osiris, standing on a small pedestal. The statuette and its pedestal stand on a large rectangular block of wood; all parts are painted. The statuette is hollow and intended to contain a papyrus scroll. As such it formed part of a tomb equipment. In the back pillar is a lid that is partially preserved.
On the head is a long smooth wig that does not cover the ears, painted black but now faded. On the wig is the shuty-crown, consisting of two ostrich feathers and a sun disk mounted on ram's horns. The feathers are gilded and inlaid with blue and red stripes, the horns are black. The god's face is also gilded, the eyes and mouth are indicated in black paint.
Ptah-Sokaris-Osiris wears a tight-fitting red mummy-gown. On the chest is a broad wesekh-collar with falcon's heads on each end, painted red, white and blue. Over the collar hangs a small pectoral with uraei on both sides and a winged scarab underneath.
The block of wood has been plastered and painted with white, red and blue lines, imitating a palace façade or a wall with niches.
On the front of the lower legs are three vertical lines of text; another line is on the lid of the back pillar.
