Next two the columns are two women in long dresses who are sitting on a wall which extends across the width of the document and separates the image from the text. Above the figures are two trees. In the upper sides of the document are two pairs of doves with ribbons around their necks. They are sitting on two stems of flowers and are holding flowers in their beaks. The document is enclosed by a decorative border.
