Head part with a large wig in a pattern in turquoise, light brown and white that frames the red-brown face. A scarab is painted over the forehead. The adjoining wide decorative collar adorns the chest, which is closed at the bottom by a ribbon depicting the four sons of Horus in the form of a mummy, each of whom holds the mate's feather and two strips of fabric. During the restoration, however, these were uniformly painted over as Kebechsenuef (falcon-headed). A vertical, heavily painted hieroglyphic inscription runs across the lower part.
