This painted wooden stela depicts a man (his name is identified as Ihefy and his title was "the doorkeeper of the house of Amun") adoring the hawk-headed god Horus. Horus sits on a throne and holds a flail. There is a red and blue lotus bloom over a yellow stand in the middle of the scene. From Egypt, 22nd Dynasty, 945–720 BCE.
