This rilezu, showing Rakka peacefully resting on the ground with her knees up, is from the trailer, which includes a scene in which Rakka visits the Western Woods and sits on the stone monument where the Haibane go at the time of their “nest-leaving” or Day of Flight. A moment later the mood changes, as she finds Kuu’s halo, now inert and cold, under a coating of fallen feathers. Sequence number: A1

The clean-up douga that accompanied this indicates that it combines the A1 and B1 images. Presumably one of these showed Rakka’s form (front side, first thumb) and the other added her halo and wings (back side, second thumb). This was in fact a tome image (i.e., the only one used during this cut), as Rakka remains the same while the background moves behind it. In fact, if you screen the trailer (available on YouTube) you can see that the stone monuments were on “book” layers as they move at a slower rate, giving the illusion of depth between Rakka and the bushes behind her. In the rilezu, however, they were added to the copy background.
