The sisters Keti and Senet are facing each other over an offering table. Holding a piece of fabric in one hand, each sister smells a lotus flower. Both women are adorned with broad collar, bracelets and anklets. Various funerary offerings are laid out on the table like heads of two bulls and bread. Below the table stand a libation vessel and a bottle.
