Description by J. Rigg (1847)

‘It has been embellished with neatly executed sculpture, cut in a still finer variety of the same white stone, applied in slabs. On two sides this has been entirely mouldered away, but […] [on one side] it is still very clear and distinguishable, though often much injured. The subject matter appears to be similar to that observed at Panataran; the same old holy man, with flowing beard, is entreating with folded hands a queen or princess squatting in a bali-bali [a sort of wooden podium], who is waited on by female attendants neatly dressed with smooth combed hair bound into tresses. The princess is represented as enveloped in a handsome damasked dress and a handmaid stands beside her holding the siri [betel] box. The same description[?] of open chariots with spoke-wheels are drawn by horses – there is a man on horse-back, seated on a saddle with his garments streaming around him; the horse is clad all over in armour or at least a housing which covers the whole body from the chest to the rump. Parts of buildings and of open galleries are represented but the perspective is bad, such as we see in Chinese drawings; the chiselling and execution itself is neat and minute. On the eastern side, opposite to this, may be still seen the remnant of a car drawn by a horse at full speed, and near it a large human figure is kicking away one demon-monster, whilst it catches another in its left hand, as it comes to it through the air.’ (Rigg 1847: 542-543)
