Shape: panel comprises fifty tiles arranged in ten rows of five roughly square tiles, forming a rectangle framed in light wood. Upper surface: on the upper half of the panel, a mosque structure flanked by minarets is framed within a pointed archway whose spandrels contain a scrolling floral pattern and vases reserved in blue.

Two of the tiles, on the fourth row far right and on the tenth row extreme left, do not belong in the panel but must have been inserted to replace missing examples.
