Quartzite/sandstone statue of the Nile-god, Hapy holding an offering-table before him. The features of the god are believed to be those of Osorkon I, and there is a relief representation of the donor, Sheshonq, High Priest of Amun and son of Osorkon, on the left side. The god is otherwise surrounded by relief representations of the abundance he brings to Egypt; the base, the dorsal pillar and the rim of the offering table are all inscribed with hieroglyphic texts - recording the dedication, parents' names and names and titles of the donor.
