This depicts an abstracted image of two hands; one reaching upward and holding a bowl releasing flames and a bright light with eight beams. The other hand holds a white horn upside down with three birds, possibly turkeys, coming out toward a lush stalk of corn. A stylized human figure, with a large lizard at his feet, stands with his hands outstretched toward the hand with the horn. A large impression of a foot is found between the human figure and the stalk of corn.
