Relief in waste Stone representing a tree that appears to be a laurel. In it, birds flutter and peck, blended between the branches and the leaves. Under its trunk, and piercing it from side to side, is a hole where a snake slithers. Over and under it are two horizontal stripes that frame the relief which are decorated with volutes and intertwined branches, leaves and flower.
