Description This fragment originally formed part of the left side of a stela: it depicts three oryx antelope heads with vegetal bundles between their horns. The antelope symbolizes the sacred hunt in the service of the patron god, whereas the vegetal elements symbolize the ritual event that followed the hunt.
