Description:

Block statue of Seneb, squatting on the ground with his legs tucked up to his body. His feet can be seen protruding from under a long-sleeved garment and his arms are crossed with palms flat on his knees. There are five rows of hieroglyphs on the front of the statue, in dedication to Osiris.
The statue would have been brightly painted; some paint still remains on the face, hands and feet and also on the hieroglyphs.
