Description: Showing scene in middle where a man is seen adoring a serpent coiled round a tree. The hood of the serpent is adorned with a jewel. Next two figures confront each other with clasped palms, the one to the right appearing to emerge from a pillar of fire. Followed by 2 more confronted figures, sitting, that on the left, multi-headed and with 4 arms, may represent Brahma. Then we see a horse and rider in landscape indicated summarily by a few rocks in the foreground and framed by 2 trees. In the foreground and behind the horse is a tiny figure who is actually standing outside the frame and on the ornamental border. -- see slide IM74 for further information.
