The three-part composition includes a highly conventionalized female figure with lowered arms and rays projecting from the head. Arranged on either side are architectural buildings in the arches of which two female figures are set; a half-figure with raised arms is placed between them. The infillings are diamond-forms. At extreme right is a single female figure. The buildings are topped with solar rosettes between symmetrical scrolls; the outer border contains a series of geometrical plant forms.
