Design for a frieze with a meandering acanthus scroll with two big loops. On the right side of the frieze a satyr grabs a female hybrid creature whose lower body transforms into the acanthus scroll. To the left two fantastical creature, variants to a bird and snake, are fighting. Further to the left a dragon and a snake are interspersed between the scrolls. The frieze is closed off on the left side by the figure of a putto.
