Pedamunopet is depicted with crossed legs and folded arms that rest on his knees; his body is covered with a cloak from which only his hands and feet emerge.

His wig leaves his big ears exposed and his facial features are realistic. A figure of the god Osiris is sculpted on the front of Pedamunopet's cloak.

Both are resting on a base adorned on the side by a frieze of hieroglyphic inscriptions.
