Hanuman is depicted with a human body and a monkey head.  The image is incised on the plate and his body is entirely textured with characters in the devanagari script.  Often merely the letter ‘r’ designating the god Rama with whom he is associated.  He is in a striding posture and there are a number of sections of text scattered around the image.  At his feet is a human figure walking in the opposite direction.  He holds a double flag consisting of two triangular shapes facing him in his left hand along with a thin club.  One appears to emanating from his mouth?  His right hand is lifted with an arrow above it and his tail curves behind him.  There is also a small altar depicting the two feet of Rama in the area between his outstretched leg and the end of a scarf wrapped around his body.<br />
