Faience figure of a squatting baboon representing Hedjwer, 'the Great White One'. Well-formed face, including details of the eyes and brow-ridges. The mouth is indicated by an incised line. All the legs are delineated, the forepaws resting on the lower part of the bent hind legs. Most of the blue-green glaze has now decayed to leave an off-white surface colour.
