The image displays an ancient sculpture of an Egyptian figure, likely representing a pharaoh or deity given the traditional headpiece. The figure is rendered in a dark bronze with a greenish patina, signifying considerable age. It features prominent carved details such as a collar or neckpiece. The figure's pose is formal and stiff, typical of Egyptian statuary; it holds one arm across its chest while the other arm is down by its side. The sculpture is mounted on a simple, dark, rectangular display base which provides a sturdy support to the artifact. There are visible signs of wear and corrosion, consistent with the antiquity of the piece.
