Painted with an audience scene in a palace with a gesturing lord seated on a rasied dais with left leg dangling downward, wearing a tightly cinched belt, necklace with bar pendant and complex headdress with plumes flaring from the back, a kneeling female attendant holding a rope(?) in her hands perhaps as she readies herself for ritual bloodletting, attired in a boldly patterned garment and elaborate headdress and ear-flares, with four glyphs above, painted in orange, deep red, aquamarine blue and black on the cream ground.
