Rectangular relief with raised image of three wild horses facing proper right, one of which has a nude man upon it. The man leans back in an attempt to restrain the horse. Suggestions of clouds in the background lunette form, and the irregular mound of earth and plant matter which spills over onto the outer frame, further instensifies the energy and sense of movement. Ribboned fern leaves adorn the spandrels and a keystone extends from the outer frame to the top of the lunette. A raised button adorns each lower corner.
