Khnumnakht is depicted sitting on a throne with a short spine. His wig showing his large ears, his round head, his almond-shaped eyes and his thick-lipped mouth are very characteristic of the private sculptures of the 12th Dynasty. He wears a long apron on which both his hands are placed. His large feet rest on a wide base in front of the throne. The sides of the throne are decorated with hieroglyphic texts mentioning the name and titles of the owner.
