They are attached with fibre. The central support rod was cut off at some point. The character is a male associated with the court, probably a low-ranking courtier.

- Curator's comments
The character is identified as Banijaran Sarie on the foot, but this is inaccurate, as that character is a king.
The name provided for this character in the records is Darasdalem, which is unusual. Dalem means servant of the king. Daras probably refers to his occupation. He is possibly a low-ranking court minister.
