The parts found over the lower pit constitute the right-hand bars and legs. The chair had collapsed towards the north and the right-hand side had been disarticulated by 1) the fall onto the settled debris or 2) the subsequent settlement.
No. 104 presents a problem. [ILLUSTRATION]. Inside the gold leaf was evidence of decayed wood, gesso backing and also a quantity of decayed paste formed of "fine-grained quartz sand" (Lucas).
