Many blue and magenta medallions inhabited by two-legged hybrids and fowls in spared-ground technique are scattered in and around the initials. The top and bottom of the panel are decorated by two painted bands of yellow foliate scrolls dotted by purple and red on a green ground. In the lower part of the left text column, the initial "Not to” ((שלא of the second negative precept is written in display script within a small red filigree panel and decorated by a magenta medallion of a yellow flower in green circle dotted in white. The text space is framed by stripes of magenta blue and yellow wavy lines, which terminate in the upper and lower margins with another four inhabited medallions. Flourishes extend from these medallions into the margins.
