Manasa, seated in a posture of royal ease, has a hood of seven snakes and an additional snake in her left hand. The fruit in her right hand and the vase underneath her foot are symbols of wealth and fertility. The ascetic to her right is her husband Jaratkaru, and to her left is a figure who is either her son, Astika, or her brother, Vasuki, the serpent king. Even the flying offering deities flanking the blossom finial at the top of the stele have snake bodies. A kneeling female worshipper and her offering are shown at the base.
