This block statue bears the name of Bak-en-Khonsu. He is crouched on a thin round cushion. His arms are crossed on his knees and he holds in his right hand a well-detailed plant.

He wears a headdress that reaches his shoulders leaving ears and neck uncovered. He has a small beard and wears a tight belt.On the right shoulder, two cartouches of King Osorkon the Second of the Twenty-Second Dynasty, are engraved.

A scene at the front shows Bak-en-Khonsu, designated as "Justified Dead," offering the sign of Maat, or justice, to Amun and Osiris. A long dedicatory hieroglyphic text is on the other sides of the statue.
