Sculpture of god Amun, or Amun-Re, made in solid bronze using the lost-wax technique. The god is standing in a frontal position with his left leg forward in a marching attitude, a typical iconography of Egyptian art.

His feet are placed on a narrow, thin, rectangular base. The god is depicted naked except for a short pleated skirt held in place by a narrow belt. His right arm falls to his thigh, while his left arm is bent forward, with which he holds a long sceptre in his hand. He wears a false beard and the customary headdress of Amun, the cylindrical crown originally surmounted by two ostrich feathers, with the sun disc, symbol of Ra, in front.
