physical_description
The narrative frieze shows a cortege of dancing and sacrificing nagas and naginis. On the left margin an incense vessel with a flaring flame is suspended against the background. Two naginis standing parallel have cobra heads emerging behind their left shoulders. Then follows a naga playing a wind instrument and a nagini playing a tambourine. Three other dancers complete the scene.
