This gray schist statue depicts King Tuthmosis the Third, who regained his throne after 20 years of struggle with his aunt and stepmother, Queen Hatshepsut. The queen usurped his right to the throne of Egypt after the death of his father, her husband King Tuthmosis the Second.

The statue represents Tuthmosis the Third as a great athletic warrior king.

The "nine-bows," which refer to the traditional foes of Egypt, are depicted below the king's feet.

According to the inscriptions on the base, this statue was part of a group of fine sculptures that decorated the rooms of the Akhmenu Temple at Karnak.
