Catalogue Description: Large fragment of fresco with two registers of lotus design, probably forming the lower border of a large wall composition. The fresco is a good though not important example of the type of decoration used in the houses at Amarna. The upper register is orange-red with black outlines. The divisions between registers are black; the lower and more complete register has a blue background with flowers in green and white, black outline. The preserved portion is in fragile condition and is apparently extremely thin. The surface has flaked considerably and apparently much of the blue background has been lost.
