An attendant kneels to the right of the throne and offers bloodletting spines with each hand.
A bloodletting bowl sits in front of Chan Muan on the throne, containing bark paper to burn the blood drippings.
Chan Muan himself appears to be pulling a thorned rope through his tongue,
an act of self sacrifice associated with female bloodletting.
Below and to the left of the throne, a woman sits on the floor cross-legged
with the heir (seen first in room 1) on her lap.
