This wooden chest with colored ivory panels shows, on the short (front) side, the seated King Tutankhamun facing a pond and shooting wildfowl and fish. His wife is seated at his legs, pointing out towards the pond.

The queen is sitting on a cushion with an arrow in her left hand waiting to pass it to the king.

On the lid, the king is seen with his queen, who is handing him bouquets of lotus and papyri. Flowers surround them.
