At left, a muscular figure stands, gesturing with an outstretched right arm while pointing upward at a star filled sky with his left. He is shown in profile, facing a group of seated figures at center and right. Each of these figures are older, bearded, and wear long robes. The figure nearest the speaker buries his head in his knees and folds his hands in front of him. The others are grouped close by, listening and seated on the ground, with a stone archway behind them. The image is surrounded by a border decorated with text and a motif of small figures floating upward from a large sleeping bearded figure who occupies the lower margin.
