The upper register contains two motifs; tree-of-life on a stepped pedestal and tree-of-life on patchwork -filled, stepped mounds. The stepped mounds has a small pavilion on the summit with two elephant heads peering out. The upper tree is enclosed with a pair of wavy snakes and the lower is enclosed by pairs of dragons with wings. Pairs of gold -colored elephants, deer, butterflies and birds fill the background. A strange almost nomadic tribal motif appears between the trees-of-life in the upper moist register.
