This large portion of a curtain has various colors and many ornaments in human, animal, and geometrical forms.

The human figures include a man standing and playing a musical instrument, which resembles a flute.

He wears light clothes with blue and white roses. His features are mostly Nubian. This picture occupies the greater part of the curtain.

The other part is a scene of a party with many people holding cups. Two of the figures, a man and a woman, are dancing. Unfortunately, parts of the party scene are missing.
