The carvings of the rock face are in the runestone style Pr 4 (c. 1070-1100) pertaining to the Urnes style.

The inscription is not signed.

The carving is c. 1,03 m tall and 0,40 m wide (These measures given in ‘Sveriges runinskrifter’ do not fit the carving’s proportions though).

 

Runic inscription

The rune text begins at the head end of the animal.
