On the upper part of the wall the god Anubis is depicted, who is lying on a building.
According to Egyptologist Kent Weeks (The illustrated guide to Luxor, page 363), the building symbolizes Khaemwaset’s tomb.
Anubis, depicted in the shape of a black dog, holds a green sekhem sceptre between his front legs and between his hind legs a flail (230) (231).
He is wearing a yellow collar, with a red scarf draped around it (231).
The lower part of the wall shows a lion, lying on top of a building (230) (232).
To the left of the two buildings, a white hieroglyphic column is shown, stating: ‘Words spoken by Anubis, who is in embalming, to the royal Osiris, Lord of the Two Lands, User-Ma’at-Ra Mery-Amun, son of Ra, Lord of Appearances, Ramesses, Ruler of Heliopolis, beloved of Osiris, Lord of perpetuity, Ruler of eternity, the great god’.
