The king's mother Mutemwia stands behind him. Beneath the kiosk is a row of foreignors from Nubia and western Asia who praise the king with upraised arms. The name of the tomb owner is not preserved.

The facsimile was painted at the tomb in 1914 by Nina deGaris Davis for the Graphic Section of the Museum's Egyptian Expedition.
