Delicately carved and painted plaster, the original colours of which, according to [fernandez] (p. 244) were apple green and silver. Jones' colours are incorrect. Simple versions of the same pattern, as incised plaster, occur on the walls of the upper gallery in the rest room of the Royal Baths, but now partly damaged, and in the Sala de los Reyes, on the wall of the central recess on the east wall.
