Beneath the arched blue hieroglyph for "heaven" is the winged solar disk of Heru-Behdety.  Ra-Heru-Akhety is seated on a throne, holding the flail and heka-scepter, and the deceased Lady of the House Iri-ka-ra stands before Him, hands raised in adoration. A table of offerings with bread, fowl, and other foods is set up before Him.
