The scene depicts the king during the heb-sed festival. This was a jubilee usually celebrated after a 30-year reign to rejuvenate an aging ruler. In the case of Osorkon II, the jubilee was celebrated in the 22nd year of his reign. Osorkon wears a long cloak and carries the crook and flail. He also wears the red crown of Lower Egypt. He faces two registers of individuals. In the top register, the cat-headed goddess Bastet faces the king. In front of her, three individuals carry poles topped with sacred images. Below this, two priests appear. At the bottom of the relief is another register depicting another part of this ritual procession.
