Round topped wooden stela belonging to the chantress of Amun, Tasheryt. She stands on the right side of the stela wearing a long, sheer dress and has her hands raised in adoration to Re-Horakhty who is seated on the left. Re-Horakhty has a large solar disk on his head and he holds the crook and flail. Before him is a table piled with Offerings. Six vertical columns of text above identify the god and the woman. In the lunette are a pair of wedjat eyes and the shen-symbol.
