The pediment receives in the middle part a decoration of a basket filled with figs, bunches of grapes and other foliage in a polylobed cartouche where runs around the periphery of acanthus lines. The horizontal base receives meanwhile in the middle bet a sheaf of olives ; the whole resting on two small sinuous feet wrapped in snails.
