A rectangular gold plaque, decorated with nine figures from the Buddhist pantheon in circular medallions flanked by clouds, the background with ring-punched decoration. The upper and lower border decorated with flowers within shaped cartouches and, to the right, a long inscription dating the plaque to 1044.
The inscription has slight differences of interpretation, but most likely translates:
Zhongxi shi'er nian si yue ba ri we shi zang xiang fa zhi ba nian tidian shangjing senglu xuanyan tai shuai ci zi zheng mensheng ji
