The scenes are: one with a diaper shaped fence and flowers, another with floral ground with a cross panelled fence, blue hollow rock and bird scene, the last with large colourful scrolling flowers. Each of these panels is separated by a diaper gilded blue two tined fork shaped band with two stylised iron red flowers.
