The pagoda in the centre represents one of the heavens. The funnel-like structure underneath it may be one of the hells. The pagoda is flanked by two skull bowls, each surmounted by a red offering-cake. On the right-hand cake is a skull and on the left-hand cake are a flower and a sword. Each cake is surmounted by a white radiance. Along the top, there are two tiger skins and a bird with entrails in its bill.
