Five pieces of cartonnage decorate the bandages of this mummy. The first piece forms the mask, where a multicoloured collar is under the two curls of the tripartite wig. The second piece is on the chest, where a cartonnage pectoral is designed with a scarab bettle spreading its wings. On the end of each wing is a falcon head. The third is on the abdomen, where a protector godesss spreads her wings while holding the two feathers of Maat. On the same piece of cartonnage is a mummy lying down below the goddess. On the legs lies a column of hieroglyphics framed within a geometirc decoration . The final piece of cartonnage depicts the shape of the feet on top with the soles of the sandals below.
