The upper body is naked and the torso is well carved with finely detailed muscle definition. On his left arm he wears bracelets at the top and round the wrist. The inscription reads: A boon which the king gives (to) Osiris, the good god ruling forever, may he give everything (good and pure) to the Ka of Twjr.
