The paintings of the tomb always show the child accompanied by his father as he introduces him to the deities or lead him to the netherworld.

In the burial room a showcase displays a fetus that probably belongs to Amenherkhepshef's mother.

The mother probably aborted her pregnancy in other child after learning about the death of Amenherkhepshef.
