The word lace derives from the Latin laqueus, meaning noose.
Animals viewed in profile, some with their legs raised, indicate movement, such as a parade or procession. The human figures are also shown in profile, with the exception of the central figure riding a chariot, who is shown frontally. There is one figure riding a donkey, with another on horseback, holding a sword. On the far right, a man and woman appear engaged in conversation. Meanwhile, various animals fill the space defying all rules of perspective, with the bird in the center appearing larger than some of the humans.
