The wonderful marble statue depicts Harpocrates as a nude young boy with his thumb in his mouth.

Traces of red color are found on the head, the eyes, the hair, and the arms. He rests his left arm on a column with decorations imitating alabaster.

A cloak, is gathered on his arm and covers a part of the column. In Alexandria during the Ptolemaic era, Harpocrates was a new image of the Egyptian god Horus, portrayed in different forms, sometimes as an infant or as a young boy.
