Description

The commemorative stela is divided into three sections, all of which are carved in sunk relief. The uppermost part consists of a winged sun disk. Below it and to the left is the sacred bark barge of the god Amon-Ra with a shrine inside. A hieroglyphic inscription giving the name and epithets of the deity appears on three columns. Under the scene are fragmentary remains of offerings piled on altars. The middle section pictures the seated deity amon on the left before whom are the dedicant Kauemperptah, his wife (?) and child. Barely visible toward the right on the uppermost register are the remains of three female figures whose arms are raised. In the hand of the last woman on the right is a sistrum.
