The moon god Khonsu is shown here as a child. He is naked and the index finger of his right hand is on his chin.

He wears the traditional side lock hairstyle of childhood and a dotted headband with a uraeus, or royal cobra, on his forehead. On his head, he wears the lunar disk, the emblem of the god, surmounted by the Atef crown. Between the lunar disk and the crown is an ibis representing the god Thoth.

Both Knonsu and Thoth were lunar gods and they were sometimes united and called Khonsu-Thoth. There is a story about the two where Thoth won a portion of Khonsu's light.
