This statuette depicts the warrior and hunter god Anhur. He wears a headdress of four plumes. It is gathered in a bunch like those worn by the warrior gods Montu and Sopdu. His beard is attached to his wig by a golden wire.

He is wearing a robe. Anhur wears flat rings on the upper part of his arm and on his wrist. His eyes are inlaid and his eyebrows are made of gold. The god's left hand is raised. It probably held a spear to signify his warrior prowess.
