The small wooden stela of Aafenmut is topped by the solar barque in the sky, which is supported by the emblems of the east (on the right) and the west (on the left). The deceased, wearing a wrap-around dress over a tunic, presents incense to the seated sun god, Ra-Harakhty, from whom he is separated by an offering table.
