An outer circle or hoop with projecting flames and flames and rays in low relief on the sides. Circle is transfixed on an arrow with a star at the end of its shaft. Within the circle is a broad lateral belt with figured emblems and signs of the Zodiac modeled in low relief on the outside, hours of the day inside in letters, and the sun and figures of night and day with owl and cock. Two narrower rings cross the larger band, with two smaller arctic and antarctic circles near the poles. On the base within the sphere a semi-nude man and woman sit, supporting a standing nude child.
