Catalogue Description:
Rectangular shaped limestone block with sunk relief design. On the proper right are two vertical lines, and the imagery is set up in two registers. The top register begins just left of center, and is set on a ground line. The scene shows the lower portion of a large animal grazing on a squat pointy-leafed bush. To the left of the animal is a short leafless tree. To the extreme right of the animal is a set of men's legs in running motion. The man is wearing a short skirt that ends above his knees. The leg in the foreground is raised in a 90 degree angle and the leg in the background has a slight bend in the knee. The lower register begins just left of center and depicts the upper portions of two leafless trees. The right corner depicts the edges of branches on a third tree. Condition: the corners on the bottom left and bottom right are damaged.
