Panel showing the bodhi tree and worshippers in four rectangular compartments. On the right the bodhi tree has pendent branches and what looks like a disc behind the trunk. The tree stands on a strewn platform with a face of plain panels, unless a vedikā is intended. Three compartments on the left contain half-length figures, perhaps of deities, with a chignon, a collar and an uttarīya; one is turned to the tree, two are turned towards each other, holding a lotus by its stalk at shoulder level and two also hold a lotus in the other hand. Their torsos are broad, their heads long and oval and their eyes rounded and protruding. Framed between the compartments are short tapering Corinthian columns without bases, and at the far left is a panel with a zig-zag of hatched triangles.
The cornice and framing fillet below are plain.
