This illegible print that shows an eight-petalled lotus with a circular border and a border of flames is probably dedicated to the goddess Marichi as indicated by the still legible seed syllable “Mam” in the centre of the lotus. It probably offers the bearer help against certain risks and danges such as robbers, thieves and so on, as it can be also found on another amulet print of Marichi in this collection (cf. 065035).
