This relief fragment shows the tree-goddess emerging from a sycamore tree and offering water to Ptahmose and his wife, who kneel at the base of the tree. Behind the wife stand two men with their arms raised in adoration, followed by two children with offerings. Most of the figure of Ptahmose, to the right of the tree, is now missing.
