Description (Catalog Card) : Set of shell plaques. 4 are engraved with figures of animals, 2 of bulls, one of a stag, one a gazelle, all with foliage behind: the engraved lines were filled in with color, black for the animals, red for the scenery. The order of the 4 main plaques is certain, one above the other, bull, bull, stag, gazelle: with them were 2 pieces with eye design and the position of these is uncertain: but as a lapis border on the right was pink, the latter was probably the outside and the eye plaques came on the left. With these was found a single piece of mother of pearl border (?) with a circle on it at one end on one side, and at each end on the other. The whole restored as a single piece. Inlay or other incrustation, 3 plaques of shell with engravings of cattle, one above the other, between them and above blue lapis strips, red limestone down the front against the heads of bulls. The engraved line were filled in with black color for animals and red for landscape. [drawing] A 4th, broken, plaque with a gazelle was found, and 2 'eye' pieces.
